Open Mic

Do you have a story you have been aching to tell? We are all ears! Our Open Mic is a chance to tell your story. And if we like your story, we might pick it for our main stage show where the stories are picked beforehand and curated. Yes, you read that right! The best stories will get a chance to get coached by our Director, Akshay Gajria and will be featured as a storyteller in our signature True Stories Told Live show.  

 

What are we looking for?

Give us a nugget of your life or a piece of your soul, gift wrapped in words. Use the best wrapper you have. Show us the workings of your mind. Twist it all around and wow us because it's so whimsical. Open your heart to us. Bleed into the mic. We want to know it all. Let go and tell us everything.
