Brutally Honest Storytelling Open Mic

  • Blind Pig 208 N First St Ann Arbor, MI USA (map)

Brutally Honest Storytelling Open Mic is a live storytelling event where it gets real.

Come to share your honest, real, personal stories. No experience necessary. New storytellers or experienced storytellers - everyone has stories.

Tell a story off the top of the dome OR prepare a story & tell it OR read a story from paper, it doesn’t matter as long as it’s your brutally honest story. OR just come to listen, that’s okay too!

Hosted by:  Shannon Cason (The Moth, Snap Judgment, RISK!, WBEZ’s Homemade Stories).
