Matt Kabik won our debut Story Slam tonight with an excellent story of how he found himself in a rather embarrassing situation. The theme of the night was "Embarrassing Moments!" Matt won a prized pint glass and has earned a slot in our November Grand Slam. In the Grand Slam, the ten winning storytellers will compete for the title of "Best Storyteller in Lancaster." Matt was originally tied with two other awesome storytellers, so the producers called up the judges, announced the names of the three tied storytellers, and asked the judges to privately convene and declare the winning story.
We heard some hilarious and truly embarrassing stories on the night, so we want to really thank all our storytellers for being brave at the microphone. We heard several stories about defecation - in a new boyfriend's bed, in a campground, and a kitty litter box. There were stories about lottery winnings, urination, and foreign countries. We heard a story about poison ivy covered testicles, and a story about a hook up that ended awkwardly.
Our next Story Slam will be Tuesday, February 24th and the theme is "Guilty Pleasures!" You can order your tickets by clicking HERE.
