If you’ve been telling your friends about this mind-boggling fun storytelling event, this month's show is a great intro to what Bawdy Storytelling is: edgy, explicit, smart, and completely social, And if you arrive at the show and find an angle without representation, this show is curated THEN it's a Story Slam, so put your name into the hat to tell YOUR story and help us cover all the bases - cause EVERYBODY has a story for this theme!
Sign up at the start of the event to tell a 5 minute story on that evening's theme - this month, our theme is ‘..And I Never Saw Them Again.’ Names submitted 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 tale – and perhaps even win the title of Dirtiest Storyteller in Los Angeles!
