"Have you longed to air your X-rated anecdotes on stage? Arrive early to Cafe Royale to take part in the slam -- you'll have five minutes to speak your piece, and be judged on storytelling, sexy theme relevance (tonight's is "Jackpot!"), and adherence to time limit."
- San Francisco Bay Guardian
It’s Bawdy Storytelling’s New Dirty Story Slam – a storytelling competition for nifty prizes and braggin’ rights!
Have you ever wished that you could show up at Bawdy to spontaneously tell your own story on stage? Now you can: Introducing BawdySlam, the uncurated, on-the-fly version of Bawdy Storytelling. What’s different? BawdySlam has a zippier time frame, the thrill of competition and a show that’s full of audience participation. You’ll never know what’s coming next (and neither will Dixie).BawdySlammers will sign up at 7:30 PM to tell a 5 minute story on that evening's theme - this month, our theme is ‘Jackpot!’
Names will be drawn at random from a hat, and a team of judges will be selected from the audience to rate the stories on
- The storyteller’s performance/construction of their tale
- How the story connects to the theme (& about sex!)
- How well the storyteller honors the time limit (points will be subtracted for stories that exceed the time limit)
Prizes will be awarded - and this month’s Slam winner will compete in the BawdySlam Championships farther down the line. Now you can to compete* with all those true-ly racy tales you hear each month with your very own personal story – and perhaps even win the title of Dirtiest Storyteller in San Francisco!*
Just want to listen to crazy stories? We support that - and hope to inspire you to go out and create your own.
