  No, I'M the worst! A Storytelling Competition for Terrible People
State: New York

Have you ever been bad at something? Have you ever been bad to someone? Have you ever just been BAD? Well, I have a storytelling show for you! Leave your kids at home (unattended, if you want) and join us!

"No, I'M the worst!" is a live storytelling competition for people who are now, or have ever been, terrible people. In three rounds, storytellers compete to be named the worst person in the room. Either they're bad at something - or they have been bad to others - or they're just bad.

After The Worst is chosen, a lucky (unlucky?) audience member is chosen to challenge the Winner (Loser?). It should be YOU. Come on out, and put your name in the hat! Maybe you can finally prove to the world that YOU are the WORST.

Hosted by Kevin R. Free (The Moth Radio Hour, Welcome To Night Vale, Thank you for Coming Out)

Doors Open at 7, Stories begin at 7:30 PM
Admission $10 if you use the code THE WORST online or at the box office

  Andy Offutt Irwin as Teller-In-Residence
State: Tennessee

With a manic, Silly Putty voice, hilarious, heart-filled stories, and amazing mouth noises, (arguably the greatest in the world), Andy Offutt Irwin has been described as “The Marx Brothers meet Eudora Welty.”
Irwin’s appearances have taken him across the U.S., including the Library of Congress and Walt Disney World’s EPCOT Center. He has been associated with Oxford College of Emory University since 1991, where he maintains the title, Artist-in-Just-Passing-Through. Irwin is the recipient of the NSN ORACLE Circle of Excellence award.

“A fiendishly clever union of Tom Lehrer’s topicality . . . cut with Bobby McFerrin-style mouth music. Andy Offutt Irwin’s shows are good quirky fun!” – The Atlanta Journal/Constitution

  In the Groves: A Summer Solstice Journey
State: Massachusetts

This enchanting evening of tree myths from around the world was designed specifically for Boston’s favorite tree sanctuary, the Arnold Arboretum. The Summer journey starts at the Hunnewell Visitor’s Building and continues along tree-lined paths with story and music accompanying the way. As twilight descends, the audience visits cherry, evergreen, ash and birch groves, celebrating nature with tree legends, songs and music from many lands. Pieces are drawn from the rich cultural traditions of Japan, Wales, England, Australia, Russia and Native America. The evening culminates with the haunting Czech legend The Wild Woman of the Birch Grove told among the birches of Bussey Hill at sunset. This annual event is appropriate for adults and for older children. Bring a cushion to sit on if you wish. The journey will be approximately two miles on and off trails. The performance takes place rain or shine. In the event of rain, it will be held indoors and additional Solstice legends will be added.

  Ed Stivender as Teller-In-Resdidence
State: Tennessee

A self-described “full-time daydreamer who moonlights as a storyteller,” Ed Stivender has toured the world since 1981 presenting his one-man shows in Austria, Ireland, New Zealand, Indonesia, and in festivals across the U.S. Known for his delightful mixture of whimsy, wit and wisdom, he invites his audience into an interactive dance of the imagination.

The author of two books of coming-of-age stories, his writing has appeared in Reader’s Digest, Catholic Digest, and Chicken Soup for the Romantic Soul. Stivender, an NSN ORACLE Circle of Excellence award recipient, is also an award-winning Philadelphia Mummer.
