Please note: we’re in the Ballroom this month while they do renovations in the Melody Bar… You just need to go straight instead of turning right when you enter the doors. Inspired by Bawdy Storytelling in California, Tell Me Something Good (@TellMeToronto) brings sexy storytelling to Toronto. Samantha Fraser (@nympsam) and Sophie Delancey (@sophiedelancey) are your lovely co-hosts every month for your storytelling pleasure. Tell Me Something Good is your opportunity to share short stories of sexual glory, gaffes, and growth for the chance to win sexy prizes, or if you’d rather not share, feel free to just sit back and be entertained.
This month we are returning to the Melody Bar at the Gladstone Hotel. Also, this event will be free once again, so make sure you show up early to grab your seat.
Doors at 8 with some fun warm-up activities, including Truth or Dare. Storytelling kicks off at 9 pm sharp!
How it works for Interested Storytellers:
You sign up and we’ll toss names into a hat to pick up to 10-15 storytellers for slots of up to 5 minutes each. There are points for engaging with the audience (so don’t just read the whole thing!) and it must be a true story!
It’s PRIDE! Well, it will be SLIGHTLY AFTER PRIDE. That means we’re doing a Pride-related edition of Tell Me Something Good. Coming out, celebrating pride, queering things… But, it’s not just that! We’re also celebrating pride in yourself, your sexuality, your body… It’s a bit of a free for all so that everyone can be included, but a broad topic means you’re guaranteed to have a story to share or a commonality found as an audience member. Also, it’s an excuse to keep the party going through midweek. You just haven’t had enough, right?
We’ll have an esteemed panel of judges who will start the night off with a few of their own stories and then rank each entry to choose our winners at the end of the night.
*** Important note: We strive on making this a safe(r) event. We will not tolerate homophobia, racism, transphobia, ablism, agism, misogyny, whorephobia, slut shaming, fat-phobia, or any other jerky behaviour or language. Please make sure that your stories are respectful so that everyone can feel included and have a good time! And in the words of Samantha’s first crush, Wil Wheaton, don’t be a dick! ***
