Story Medley - a reading and storytelling experience with storyteller, author, comedian- Ty Fance
Storyteller/ Author/ Comedian, Ty Fance, will read a select group of stories from his book of autobiographical short stories entitled "Off My Head and Over the Fence" in a ninety minute one-man show called "Story Medley." The show will include stories about Ty's colorful urban childhood, the drama, tension and reward of fatherhood, and his unique experience with the "N-Word."
Ty worked with director/ writer, Steve Skrovan (Everybody Loves Raymond), to bring the stories to life for the stage.
Ty wrote these stories, while struggling to maintain a real estate career in a declining market. He spent evenings and weekends performing around town at various storytelling venues, like the Story Salon in Valley Village and the Coffee Gallery in Altadena.

Ty's brand of humor is introspective and insightful, often revealing emotions felt by everyone. His stories draw upon a difficult childhood in Compton, California, the birth of his three daughters and the challenges of fatherhood, the nuances of marriage, and more. There is something for everyone in Ty's comedy performances.
Ty's book of short stories, entitled "Off My Head and Over the Fence", is a collection of autobiographical funny, silly and at times poignant moments that have been well received by readers.
Ty has performed at The Story Salon, The Altadena Coffee Gallery Backstage Theater, the Hollywood Improv, the Comedy Store, and the Ice House Comedy Club in Pasadena.
Ty co-wrote the stage shows The Father 'Hood and Laugh at the Pain. The fatherhood show explores the tender and often funny side of being a dad. Laugh at the Pain unveils the hilarious and sometimes wacky parts of life challenges.
Born in Houston, Texas, Ty moved to California in the mid-70's where he attended high school and went on to earn an electrical engineering degree from California State University at Long Beach. After several years working as an electrical engineer, he found a greater calling in Storytelling and stand-up comedy. Working both sides of the brain, Ty Fance is a hit with all audiences.
