So, I've been taking this storytelling class with Corey Rosen at Writing Pad. Corey is currently the host of The Moth. It's been fun. I know Corey from Bay Area Theatresports, and his storytelling methods incorporate improvisation. Now, like the end of most performance workshops, there is a performance. Since I was in two classes, I'm in two performances (with two different stories). The performances, which are free, are Friday, 12/11 and 12/18.  On the 11th, I'll be telling "My Relationship with Cheese", and on the 18th, I'll tell "The Joy of Bombing". 

What: Storytelling showcases
When: 12/11 and 12/18
Where: Thick Description Theater,  1695 18th St., San Francisco, Ca.  94017
Cost: Free                SPACE IS LIMITED

I loved meeting Kealoha.  Not only cuz he's an artist from Hawaii, but he is a beautiful person.  Here's our interview.  I hope you find it as delightful as I do.

My interview with Kate was almost as delightful as she.  In this interview, Kate talks about storytelling, singing, growing up during the Civil Rights Era, traveling and the correct way to pronounce Nashville.

I was able to talk to Clare fore a half hour.  Not only is she talented and funny, but she is very intelligent. This interview will be helpful not only to the novice storyteller, but to anyone who enjoys the craft of storytelling. 

 
 
I'm going to post the interviews I had with our four featured storytellers.  I've had a horrendous September, so I'm late doing this, but they will be posted by Monday, October 5th.

Yeah, I'm having a good time.  My performances have been fun, despite the low attendance.  Honestly, it is a bit discouraging spending a lot of money to produce a show and travel to a Fringe festival and not get big crowds.  But, on the other hand, it says something about my talent when I can keep a small audience entertained and laughing for an hour.  

Despite the competition for audience, the fringe experience is fun.  It's good to see friends and their new creations, and it's good to met new people.  I'm happy about this show.  It's a lot of fun to do.  

And, there's one more performance here at the Westport Coffee House.  This Thursday night at 10:30 pm.  Traditionally, the last show has been the best attended.  And, there aren't many shows at the same time.

You can help me during my writing process.  Please come to support me at Monday Night at the Marsh on May 4th and May 18th.  The show starts at 7:30, and the admission is $7.  I will be sharing the stage with four, that's right FOUR other solo performers (each of whom are very entertaining).  My contribution for both evenings is called "The Perfect Mistake and other stories".  I intend to be telling slightly different stories each night.  


The Marsh Theater is located at 1062 Valencia Street, San Francisco (parking garage at 21st and Bartlett)
