Tennessee… It’s a Place I’ll Be…

Storytelling! It’s something I’ve been doing a whole lot more of the past few years. While I’ll always think of myself of a standup comic before all else it’s been really rewarding to work within a performance style that allows me to talk candidly about things I’ve experienced without constantly working to generate laughter at every turn (though, if I’m being real, pretty much all of my stories have a comedic delivery).
Anyway, after lots of work with local organizations like MassMouth and the Boston chapter of The MOTH I’m finally hitting the road for storytelling. This October I’m heading down to Jonesborough, Tennessee for the National Storytelling Festival to take part in their Story Slam!
The festival runs Friday 10/7 – Sunday 10/9 and the slam is on Saturday the 8th. I’ll be competing with a tale on the theme of “Lost & Found” and I couldn’t be happier to be spending 3 days immersed in amazing narratives, likeminded creators, and a whole mess of Tennessee style pulled pork BBQ.
