This Really Happened... Storytelling at HT


One Friday a Month: March 8, April 5, May 3!

Join us for our ongoing series This Really Happened... featuring some of the most hilarious and moving storytellers on stage. With a rotating cast of storytellers, the show is always fresh. Audience members can also claim a spot in the show and share a "two-minute tale" at the open-mic at the end of each show, for up to six audience members. Hosted by Joey Novick, each show will be one hour long with no intermission, followed by the open mic segment of “two-minute tales."

The cast for April 5th's show includes: 

ANGELA COBB
One of New York’s fastest rising up and coming comedians, Angela Cobb’s self-deprecating charm and nonchalant intellect make her a favorite among audiences in the Big Apple and beyond.

A regular at Broadway Comedy Club, Cobb can also be heard on Sirius XM Radio and her tweets have appeared on Comedy Central's @midnight, in The Huffington Post, and some cards. Additional credits include ComedyTime TV, as well as the Women In Comedy, She-Devil, Stand-Up 360, and Westchester Comedy Festivals.

As a producer, Cobb is the curator and host of "My First Time: A Stand-Up & Storytelling Show" at QED in Astoria, in which comedians and storytellers share hilarious virginity loss tales. The popular show was featured in NYC's 2016 "StoryFest."

Cobb recently made her acting debut co-starring in "A Hot Mess," a web series from Silver Tree Entertainment, LLC and was also ranked #6 in the Fall 2015 issue of It’s Queens: The Magazine’s list of the borough’s “Top 15 Comedians.”

ANDY CHRISTIE
Andy Christie is the creator and host of The Liar Show and co-founder of Slim Films, an illustration and animation studio based in New York. His writing has appeared in The New York Times and in the Thomas Beller anthology Lost and Found: Stories from New York. He appears regularly on The Moth and Sideshow Goshko.

PAUL LYONS
Paul’s comedy is inspired, inventive, and a pure delight. For over twenty years he has performed in every state, as well as overseas in England and Australia. His more than two dozen TV appearances include Comedy Central, Everybody Love’s Raymond, And Showtime. The New York post sums him up this way, “Pure gold, very funny and illuminating.
As a storyteller and humorist, Paul has headlined in every state as well as overseas in London, England and Sydney, Australia. As an essayist Paul’s inspiring, peculiar pieces appear regularly in Playgirl, TV Guide and Details magazines.

DAVID WINSTON on storytelling:
"Humans’ defining difference from animals isn’t the opposable thumb or responsibility for the world’s mass development. Per Dave Winston, it’s the raw — and simple — ability to tell a story.

“It’s our ability to communicate not just information but feeling to each other,” the filmmaker said. “Storytelling is great for communicating empathy. We’ve been doing it since we had language.”

Each month, Winston said, he shares tales at about five story slams, or live events where participants tell first-person stories that last about five minutes. There’s usually a theme to center the night.

Within the last month, Philadelphia has hosted several social impact-focused story slams, including PWPVideo’s Mission Story Slam at Yard’s Brewery this Tuesday, which has the theme of “That Moment.”
