StorySlam Oakland is a live, true storytelling show on a theme. Featuring selected storytellers plus open-mic stories from the audience. At the beginning of the show, everyone plays a fun icebreaker game which will get you talking and seeding your mind with stories. You might even meet some wonderful new people. Or just come and listen to the stories- the game is optional.

How the Show Works:
Put your name in the hat for a chance to tell a true, personal story of your own on the theme. If you get chosen, you will have up to 5 minutes to tell your story. No notes or reading allowed! You will hear a bell at 5 minutes, indicating it's time to end your story.
StorySlam is an all-ages show, but we are not about to tell the storytellers to watch their mouths.
Younger folks are welcome, but they may come home with some new knowledge and colorful language.
Tickets go on sale soon.
Tickets are refundable up to ONE day before the event.
Note: If we're sold out online, you can still get tickets for standing-room only at the door.
Next show: February 2nd. Come tell a 5-min story on any theme!
Free Spontaneous Storytelling shows will resume in February, on the first Saturday of the month at Layover in Oakland.
What it is: Spontaneous Storytelling is an interactive social event combining the fun of meeting new people with telling and hearing true stories.
An icebreaker game warms you up and gets you talking to people. Next, we pick themes from suggestions from the audience.
Then, we take turns getting up and telling our stories until all the drink tickets are gone.
Put your name in the hat, and if you get picked to tell your story, you'll win a free drink!
