StorySlam Oakland presents: Honesty

StorySlam Oakland presents: Honesty


This month's StorySlam Oakland theme, "Honesty" can be interpreted any way you want. It could be:
--about a time you were honest, and the consequences
--about a time you lied, and the consequences!
--about a time someone wasn't honest with you
--when honesty wasn't always the best policy
--when it was...

So many possibilities!
Practice your story so it's 5 to 6 minutes or less. Put your name in the hat for a chance to tell it. Or just listen and laugh.

Where: The Sound Room, 3022 Broadway, Oakland
When: Wednesday May 22, 2024
Time: Doors open at 6:30 for food & drink, show begins at 7:30 PM.
Tickets: At the door or on Eventbrite. Early bird tickets still available.

About our Featured Storyteller:
Matt Gubser is a Bay Area comic who performs across the country. He's been in SF Weekly's "Best of the Bay" and has been named “Comedian’s Comedian.” His first special, "Daddy Issues" can be seen on Next Up Comedy. His most recent album, “Before He Was Famous,” reached #2 on Amazon Music's comedy chart.
This is Matt's first time telling a true, personal story for StorySlam Oakland.

More about the show:
The venue is wheelchair accessible. There will be one intermission.
StorySlam Oakland is all open-mic, 5-minutes stories told by audience members, with a featured storyteller at the end. Sometimes we hosts pull up storytellers from the community who we know will tell an entertaining story (or we hope, at least) and we call them 'special guests'. We usually have time for 8 to 10 open-mic storytellers and special guests.

Don't wait, get your tickets now!
(Or be all last minute and get them at the door on the night of the show.)

See you on May 22,
Your co-hosts,
Julie & Inanc
