Our "Brush with Fame" Story Slam set a record - fourteen storytellers put their name in the hat - and throughout the course of the night we heard about many celebrities - but in the end, Tony Crocamo won the prized pint glass with his nearly perfect story of making plans to become a celebrity among his grade school classmates. Tony has earned a slot in the November Grand Slam!
We heard so many remarkable stories about embarrassing and funny interactions with celebrities such as the Dalai Lama, Jake Gyllenhall, John C. Reilly, Mickey Rooney, and more. We also heard other fun stories about storytellers who strived to claim their fifteen minutes of fame. So much fun that was actually included all fourteen storytellers.
Thanks so much to all those who put their name in the hat, our judges, and everyone who came out to cheer the storytellers on. Our next Story Slam is Tuesday, June 28th and the theme is "Foreign Soil!" Think about your best story from traveling to a foreign country and come on out!
