Just a quick note to let you know that I'm alive and well. I'm busy writing my next solo show (tentative release date of 2019) and I'm working on a storytelling show I'll be touring next year. I'll be telling with other actors/ storytellers in each city I go to.  So far, I plan on going to the Iao Theater in Maui and somewhere in Honolulu, Oahu. Also I may drop in in Fresno, Atlanta, and Kansas City.
I'm brushing up in smaller storytelling shows locally for instance I'm featured in a show in November in Berkeley (more later). I've also recently recorded my first voice over commercial demo, which can be found in the section titled Malcolm Grissom promo.

<![CDATA["The Voices Made Me Do It" Comes to Berkeley]]>Fri, 25 Mar 2016 05:12:27 GMThttp://malcolmgrissom.com/latest-news/the-voices-made-me-do-it-comes-to-berkeley
“The Voices Made Me Do It” was awarded both producer’s and critic’s choice in the Atlanta Fringe Festival. It was hailed as “one of the best shows” in the Kansas City Fringe Festival. And Grissom has been called a “risk taker” who gives “a  hometown tale worthy of Garrison Keillor — with Bobcat Goldthwait intensity.” You’ll laugh and cry, and may even leave the theater with hope.

On April 15th, 2015, come support The Storytelling Association of California, and enjoy an hour and a half of fascinating storytelling.  Julie Soller and Malcolm Grissom  share personal, funny and touching stories at Silk Road House, 1944 University Avenue in Berkeley.  The show starts at 7 pm, and costs $10. Get your tickets at the eventbrite link above. You can also go to www.storysaac.org.

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

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.
