The New York Storytelling Festival: The Spoken Nerd - "EPIC FAIL"
The New York Storytelling Festival brings together the country's best storytellers and storytelling producers for a week of heartache, laughter, and accounts of the human experience.
The Spoken Nerd: Geeky Stories by Dorky People
An evening of story tellers sharing true tales from real nerds!
Welcome to NYC's very first Live Storytelling Talkshow! Not only will you get Stories, magic, burlesque and science you will also get interviews and insight into the minds of these very nerdy people.
THEME: EPIC FAIL
The Spoken Nerd is a celebration of the great and noble art form of storytelling...but from a very geeky point-of-view. Each show has a theme and each invited guest story teller shares a true and personal story based on that theme. Sometimes the stories are funny, sometimes they're not. Sometimes the stories are serious, sometimes they're not. However, the stories are always explorations of the human condition immersed in tons of pop-culture. Both theatrical and intimate The Spoken Nerd strives to give a voice to the comic book/gamer/sci fi/science dork in all of us.
But more than just stories, every show will have non-story artists! Practical science demonstrations, sideshow artists, string theory lectures, jugglers and Nerd Core Hip Hop will share the stage from time to time. And all of this will come together in an epic nerd stew of awesome.
