I'm so excited to be performing at Pickathon, along with the Affable Gentlemen storytellers! Catch us at the Lucky Barn at 11pm on Friday night!
Storytelling is a timeless human tradition. Stories have the power to form unique human connections that break cultural barriers and bridge divides with unparalleled intimacy and immediacy. We’ve assembled some of the Pacific Northwest’s finest storytellers to tell true tales about being out of their element and out of their comfort zones. The unique voices of Amanda Trudell (of Affable Gentlemen and Urban Tellers), Becky Braunstein (finalist for Best Comedian in the WWeek's 2016 Best of Portland), Brianna Barrett (of Portland Storytellers’ Guild and voted Portland’s Best Storyteller of 2016), Jacob Morehead (of Affable Gentlemen), and Ryan Stroud (of Mystery Box and founder of CommuniTalks) will be sharing their hilarious and touching personal narratives with topics ranging from coming of age, to facing your fears, to finding your tribe, to being covered in chicken goo. These are the stories we tell our friends when we need to laugh, vent, or reach out and know that we are not alone. We hope you’ll join us on Friday night!
