I’ve always digged Jack London

I’ve tried to tell this story much in the same way one tells a story to a friend. It’s something that has occurred, you think about it, turn it over in your head and then tell it. I don’t know if it works or it doesn’t. Don’t know if this is what is expected or …

Stoop-Style Stories

When Dan Boyd suggested that I meet him at Stoop-Style Stories, I said, “Sure, I’ll be there!” It was about ten minutes later when my worry started to kick in:

“I don’t know where this place is, how will I get there? What if I’m not cool enough? Or what if it’s super awkward to go up to strangers and ask if they’re Dan Boyd? It’ll be dark. I could get struck by lightning. Or kidnapped by goblins.”

To at least muffle the voice of my worries, I brought a friend. Goblin crisis averted.

Before Stoop-Style Stories, I had never been to a storytelling show, so I had no idea what to expect when I waltzed into Rosa’s Lounge. What I did find, as the evening progressed, is something that regular storytelling audience members will take as a matter of fact: this is a ritual.

Lisa Scott will be a feature next month! Thanks so much!

What a great show. The word of the night seemed to be, diverse.

The evening opened up with a great story from Ken Brezinsky about fracking that reminded me of David Holmes’ Fracking Song.

And the night continued on to talk about religion, mothers, missing fathers, lost loves, and games of scrabble. It was a fun night, we got to see Amanda Rountree transform into a typical Dick’s shopper. I think that’s likely to be my biggest belly laugh of the year.

It was a really full crowd for an early January. We had a stellar points turn out too, super-crazy thanks to the thirty-three who dropped your email on us. If you missed the email sign up, there is a place to do it in the sidebar to the right.

Thanks and Congratulations go out to Scott Whitehair

Scott will be invited back to feature again! Be sure to check out his other work through out the month, be it, This Much is True, Do Not Submit, Story Lab, or one of the places he’ll be featuring around town.

He’s also doing a special show out in NY next weekend. All of his shows as well as other awesome Chicago live lit shows can be found on our calendar. (This calendar was originally set up by Aria Alexander Manifold and is maintained by a number of people.)

So thanks to everyone who dropped points on all the tellers who told this year. In Nov. we had more sheets turned in than ever before and we hope a lot of you get to make it back for our big holiday show coming up.
