The Hooker Bully – Virtual Storytelling During the Pandemic

If you’re involved in the world of live personal storytelling, as a teller or a fan, then you know the pandemic didn’t stop us but only prompted us to find each other online, thanks to dedicated producers who took their shows to the virtual road. Such shows are part of a support system that has kept us glued together as a community, and helped keep me from coming unglued personally. As we prepare to return to live shows, please allow me to share with you this fun little story from one of our pandemic-era events, the Turbine Arts Collective annual Pre-Valentine’s Show. This story is called:¬†The Hooker Bully.

So, you’d like to see more of this sort of thing? Then you’re in luck! ūüėČ I’m appearing in a half-hour one-woman show for¬†Greystone Theatre Performances, a series of virtual solo performances featuring a variety of artists at Beverly Hills’ historic Greystone Mansion. Here’s the lowdown:

My Greystone Theatre Performance, Trilogy of Traffic, premieres Monday, June 14 at 7:30 p.m., both on BHTV Channel 10 and live-streamed at http://beverlyhills.org/live. After it airs, you can find the video for Trilogy of Traffic at: http://beverlyhills.org/greystonetheatre. Thank you for supporting the storytelling tradition!

Who Was the Liar?

If you’ve checked my blog since the New Year, then you’ll recall I recently posted my latest performance on the L.A. storytelling show and podcast, Two Truths and a Lie.¬†If so, you might still be wondering who the liar was. Let me end the suspense by directing you back to host Dan Shapiro’s website for the big¬†reveal.

Dan’s show has a fun premise: three people share personal¬†stories on a theme‚ÄĒthis time the theme was Innocence‚ÄĒthen the audience guesses which storyteller is lying. For¬†a refresher on the story I told, here‚Äôs a link to Two Truths and a Lie: Episode 83.

Grampa Vs. The Thomas Fire – Storytelling at Two Truths and a Lie (Podcast)

Looking for a little New Year excitement? Please check out my latest oral story in the Two Truths & a Lie podcast. For this episode, the topic is: Survival. This time I perform a story about fleeing the largest wildfire in California history. The Thomas Wildfire invaded our small town of Ventura the night of December 4, 2017.

Two Truths and a Lie is a live storytelling show in which three performers share personal stories. The catch? One of us is lying. Can you guess who it is? Host Dan Shapiro will reveal the liar in the next episode, so please check out my next blog post for a link to the big Reveal, which will include a confession from the liar of the night. Happy New Year!
