Save the date: Tue Feb 28th & Links from last show

1 Feb

Our next show will be Tues Feb 28th @ The Garrison – more details soon!

In the meantime, THANK YOU to everyone who came down for the first show of the year – there were so many of you! And you were SUCH an amazing audience!!

Here are links from all the amazing storytellers, and other shows coming up, as promised:

Jonathan Ramoutar and Steve Iarushi (first concert; mosh pit) are in a band called Dunebug – find them on bandcamp here:

Dan Mossip-Balkwill told the story about protesting at Standing Rock. The Tribal Council have asked us to protect waterways close to us, so we collected money (I’ll let you know how much when I count it!) for Grassy Narrows – contaminated water on Native Land, where people can’t afford *not to eat the Mercury-poisoned fish. Please donate (and find out more) here:

Chris Graham (reading to his mother) teaches people how to tell stories, here:

Amy Cunningham (cockroach and news from her brother) runs an EXCELLENT comedy show every Monday at the The Office Pub on John St., called Hard Day Comedy. Find it here:
(and don’t forget to click “see first” under the “following” tab)

And me, Marsha (singing, dying granny) help people tell stories, do talks on stage and run workshops for companies and organisations, and blog with tips on how to tell stories and talk to people, over at


Tonight (Weds) is Confabulation (TO) presents: The Shortest Story – where Toronto’s best storytellers each tell stories that last only 2 minutes! Including loads of True Stories Toronto faves like Graham Isador, Rhiannon Archer, Erin Rodgers, Shawn Hogan and Jillian Welsh
(All proceeds from the show will be donated to Planned Parenthood)

TOMORROW (Thursday) NIGHT: Stories of Ours in Regent Park.
This bi-monthly show hosts immigrant stories and is INCREDIBLE. I guarantee you’ll hear things you never knew about and will feel richer for. In our current, terrifying political climate, this feels more important than ever. And, it’s PWYC! And they have snacks! Here:
@ Dundas St E and Parliament

And next Weds, Raconteurs Storytelling – “Reading & Writing” is back at Tranzac Club!

Finally, a couple of people were asking me about Storytelling workshops. While I run them for companies and organisations (email me if you want to know more!, if you’re an individual wanting to do a storytelling workshop, I HIGHLY recommend Sage Tyrtle’s 7 week workshop. I’m doing it right now, and it’s RAD! Get on her mailing list to find out when the next one is happening:

Thank you again for coming out last night! WHAT A SHOW!!!
