Moth StorySlam at Circus!

If you guys have never attended the Moth story slam in Detroit, you really need to check out the Moth's newest version of it, right here in Ann Arbor! It's like an open mic comedy night where people just tell stories centered around a particular theme. Unlike amateur comedy nights, almost all of them are extremely entertaining. You can of course sign up to tell your own story, if you have the chutzpah to pull it off.
The theme for August’s stories is "Swagger".
Note that this is an extremely popular event. Doors open at 6, they recommend getting there early if you want a good seat. You can get there later, but you might be standing the whole time. I will be there around 6:15 and will save a section of seats to the right if you are facing the stage. I will only hold seats until the rest of the section fills up and then I will release them to the public so the closer to 6:15 you can be there the better because I can't promise you a seat!
The cover is only $5 to get in (cash only, please bring small bills)
If you'd like to see some examples of stories told at these events, check out these links:

Look for me when you get there or text me at[masked]!

    Thanks to everyone who came out and sorry for any confusion, this was drastically more crowded earlier than I've ever seen, even the first moth! Next time we will start meeting earlier. Also the doors do open at 5:30 not 6 like I thought!

    It really is incredible the compelling humor that ordinary people can find in their lives

    Note to everyone: usually after the moth, we'll gather up either inside or outside and rally and either grab a bite to eat or grab a drink or both.

    Unfortunately, I wasn't able to make it because of my softball game being the same evening. However, I'm signed up for the next one and looking forward to it!

    This event was almost too good to be true! The MC was talented, professional, and hilarious, the story tellers were genuine and creative, the producers were organized, and Michigan radio was so supportive! Way to to Torron, but you were all great!!!!

    Just want to let people know that I have my phone but no charger so it's probably going to be dead by this evening, I will be there at 6:15, teal tank top, brown pants, and I made a MeetUp sign so look for that!

      Thanks Ed:) Becky, you can meet us at the front right side of the seated area if you're facing the stage. We usually take up the second row and spread into the third if our group is large enough!

    Hey Mothies! Since we have such a large number of RSVP's this month I want to stress to you that I WILL NOT BE ABLE TO HOLD MANY SEATS and will release them as the seating area fills up. PLEASE COME AS CLOSE TO 6:15 as possible to ensure you get a seat and that you can sit with our group! It's going to be a great night, hope you're getting ready to tell some stories!
