POLITICAL TALE: A Political Storytelling Show

Feb 1, 2016 @ 8:00 pm

| $10

POLITICAL TALE is the finest in NYC political storytelling. Yes, it’s a storytelling show about politics, the political system, personal encounters with the Red State/Blue State madness, and the current messed-up state of our world.


POLITICAL TALE makes its debut at Union Hall – right as the primaries kick into high gear and election frenzy begins to ramp up. It’s an event that reflects how politics really screws with each and every one of us; as told through personalized stories.

POLITICAL TALE is not a traditional yuck-yuck political stand-up show filled with Trump jokes – but the first storytelling show in New York to focus on unimaginable encounters with the political world.
