How The Show Works
Sometimes people show up in the audience who we know are really fun storytellers, and we may pull one of them up as a “special guest” and bypass the hat. All the other storytellers are pulled at random from the names in the hat. We usually have time for 8 to 10 storytellers at each show.
StorySlam Oakland rules for storytelling:
- Put your name in the hat for a chance to tell
- Stories must be about YOU
- Stories must be TRUE
- Keep it short! Length should be about 5 to 6 minutes, but no longer
- Stories must be told aloud, not read and NO notes! Tell it just like you’re telling friends around a dinner table.
No pressure! Just have fun. There is no voting and no judging.
