Cliff Lewis won the 2015 GRAND SLAM! Cliff earned the title of Best Storyteller in Lancaster with his story of winning an epic high school rap battle. The winning storytellers from throughout the season entertained the audience with some hilarious and touching stories on the theme of "Heroes." We heard stories about a nasty friend, an epic outdoorsmen, a shunned family member, and an educator willing to sacrifice her own life for children. There was a tale of a Lancaster artist who lived a simple and happy life, and about an ill man who jumped off a Philadelphia bridge and survived. We heard about surviving a marathon, winning a soccer game thanks to an oddly named teammate, and removing a curse inflicted from a playground boyfriend.
Thanks to all our storytellers, our judges, and the awesome audience who cheered our storytellers on throughout the night. Our first season was full of amazing stories and we are thankful to have met so many wonderful new friends.
Cliff's winning story is posted below. All the stories will be posted on the Lancaster Story Slam YouTube channel on Wednesday, so check back soon. And save the date of Tuesday, January 26th when we kick off the 2016 season. Themes will be announced in early December!
