West Side Stories believes that everyone has a story. Our goal is to give those stories a forum. After producing successful shows where stand-up comedians told their stories, former comic turned storyteller, Dave Pokorny sought to accommodate all those people who asked, "When can I tell my story?" And to encourage those people who doubted they had a story worth telling.
HERE'S HOW IT WORKS: Sonoma Valley Portworks provides a stage, a microphone, a theme to inspire and shape the evening, a lively and supportive audience, and Pokorny to host & guide the festivities. WSS are limited to five minutes. Potential tellers drop their name in the hat, 10 get pulled at random and are heard.
After all the stories are told a random audience-member chooses their favorite of the evening, and that teller wins $50 cash!
It's what's called a StorySlam! And that's how we do it!
Come see what everybody's talking about, the first Wednesday every month.
