Event Description

A whacked world just gets funnier with your travel stories. We all have these experiences when we leave our comfort zone and usually, they can be turned into pretty  entertaining stories  
Remember the time you accidentally fell off the camel? Or proposed marriage in a foreign language when all you intended was to do your laundry? What about the time you slept through the long train ride and ended up in...? Or when you decided to try that really interesting looking hors d'ouvre and ate your first cow testicle ?  
If you like or have stories like these, then join massmouth for an evening of laughter, storytelling and adventure.  
Three of massmouth's top storytellers, Theresa Okokon, Devin Bramhall and Paula Junn will spend the first portion of the evening describing their own travel misadventures.  After they set the hilarious tone, you'll be able to find your inner storyteller with massmouth's own Norah Dooley and associates.  She'll walk you through the basics of crafting the perfect travel tale.
In order to support this time-honored tradition of great storytelling, attendees are asked to make a $5 suggested donation which goes towards massmouth's programming and educational workshops.  See you there!
There is a free will donation at the door of $5 and hostel guests are in for free. Reserve a space here!
