The Voices Made Me Do It
coming to The Atlanta Fringe Festival
a @The Wrecking Bar Brewpub, 292 Moreland Ave NE, Atlanta, GA 30307
Thursday, June 9 @ 11 pm Friday, June 10 @ 8 pm Saturday, June 11 @ 6:30 pm Sunday, June 12 @ 2 pm
“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 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.
