The Wall Street Journal has called The Moth, "New York's hottest and hippest literary ticket." And if anyone knows hotness and hipness, it's the Wall Street Journal.
The Moth has bi-weekly storytelling contests, with different themes each event. Ten individuals are allotted five minutes each to tell their most amusing stories. As some of you may remember, last May my "Tripping with Dick Gephardt" story carried me to victory, landing me a spot in the coveted New York GrandSLAM Championships.
The GrandSLAM will feature six months of contest winners. It should be an awesome event, and once the event is announced, I'll probably be pulling you aside at random times to practice my stump story (hoping I can weave in New Orleans Jail Story).
So SAVE THE DATE, the TIME, the PLACE.
Wednesday, September 10 at Comix. Doors at 6:30. Get there early, like be standing online or have a surrogate standing online at 6:15, if you want any hope of not standing in the way back.
