Doug Landman wins our Rise Above Story Slam!
Doug Landman won our “Rise Above” Story Slam with his tale of heading to the countryside to view meteor showers only to get stuck in a cornfield in the middle of the night. Doug took home a prized pint glass and has earned a slot in our November Grand Slam, where he will compete against other winning storytellers from this season for the title of Best Storyteller in Delco!
We heard an array of stories, some comical and others more serious. TJ opened up with a hilarious story of substitute teaching and finding himself in a rather precarious predicament. Jimmy told a story of changing his name in second grade. Hillary recalled a blackout in New York City. Bradley detailed his final season playing little league. Jim discussed how he turned an embarrassing moment from years ago into something positive.
Thanks to all our storytellers, the judges, and all those who came out to cheer on the storytellers and applaud their stories! Also thanks to our emcee Bradley Beck!
Our next Story Slam will be held on May 5th and the theme will be “Awkward Pause!” Tickets can be ordered here.
