StorySlam Oakland: Coincidence
Come hear true, 5-minute stories from real people on a coincidence that impacted their life. You can also tell one of your own!
StorySlam Oakland is a live, true storytelling show on a theme. Theme changes every month. Featuring selected storytellers plus open-mic stories from the audience. At the beginning of the event, everyone is invited to play our unique and fun icebreaker game which will get you talking and mingling with everyone there. Or just come for the show - the game is optional.
How the Show Works:
After the icebreaker game, we start the storytelling. Put your name in the hat for a chance to tell a true, personal story of your own on the theme, "Coincidence". If you get chosen, you will have up to 5 minutes to tell your story.
And you win a drink ticket just for getting up there!
No notes or reading allowed. You will hear a bell at 5 minutes, indicating it's time to end your story. There is time for 7 to 10 open-mic storytellers.
We will also present one or two Featured Storytellers who will entertain us with longer stories on the theme.
The audience gets to vote on their favorite story. The winner gets bragging rights and the option to return as a Featured Storyteller at a later date.
StorySlam is an all-ages show, but we are not about to tell the storytellers to watch their mouths.
Younger folks are welcome, but they may come home with some new knowledge and colorful language.

Luka's has a full bar and food as well.
If tickets are sold out online, you can still pay cash or credit card at the door, but it may be standing room only.
