Not My Story

Apr 28, 2016 @ 8:00 pm - 10:00 pm

Has anyone ever told you a crazy story and immediately made you think, “Wow, I could’ve told this story way better if it had happened to me!” This brand spankin’ new storytelling show will put that idea to the test. ‘Not My Story’ features stories based on actual events that happened to people other than the performers. Translation: They stole the stories from their friends.

P.S. this is a **FREE SHOW** so really, what have you got to lose?
Come for the comedy, stay for delish wings, cheap beer, AND karaoke after the show!
