What’s a StorySlam? A StorySlam is more than a storytelling competition. It’s an invitation to share five minutes of your life and connect with a room full of people who appreciate a well-told tale. For the past few months, gutsy audience members have signed up to tell true stories on the theme of the night. Of those who signed up, ten storytellers were randomly selected to take to the stage with their most outrageous, heartfelt, and hilarious tales. Judges, also selected from the audience, determined the StorySlam winner, who was awarded a $100 prize, and a chance to compete in the season finale Grand Slam. Now we’re here, and this season’s StorySlam winners go head-to-head for the title of “Best Storyteller in Philadelphia,” free FPA Slam admission for life, a $250 cash prize, and bragging rights. Contestants try to win over celebrity judges with their most outrageous, gutsy, and heartfelt personal tales. Advance ticket purchase is highly recommended as this event regularly sells out. Chris Lundy hosts!
