About Perfect Liars Club
Launched in 2013, Perfect Liars Club quickly became one Washington, DC's hottest storytelling nights. The show's premise is simple but unique: Four people tell four stories. All are captivating, but only three are true. Listen. Laugh. Suspect. Interrogate. Vote. Are you shrewd enough to spot the liar?
The stories are hilarious but the interrogation is even better: you never know what questions will be asked or what evidence will be demanded of our storytelling suspects by the audience in its determined quest to spot the liar.
