The number one event of this month for me is Mother's Day. But there happens to be a few other days that I have other events that are going to be great! I'll be doing things like hosting a storytelling showcase for students I helped to teach, celebrating the 10 year anniversary with Better Said … Continue reading New month, new places to be!
Once COVID 19 hit full force with the many cancelling of events, I figure it would be a while before I would tell stories and jokes to groups of people. It didn't take producers and host just a bit to figure out a new way to deliver funny to people. Uber Eats and Grub Hub … Continue reading I’m Virtually Right Here
Morning! My blog, Story Telling On Purpose, tracks Storytelling shows in DC, MD, and VA. With everyone trying not to be in other people's space, the last safe space is virtual space. If you are having a virtual show, let me know. It can be storytelling, stand-up, or music. It can be curated or open … Continue reading Who's Doing Virtual Shows?

I've been telling stories on stage since 2015. Every year, I get better, and better. What … Continue reading You Can Learn To Tell A Story?

Students connected to the military spent weeks, at no cost, learning the art and craft of storytelling. As people mingle and talk, I can feel … Continue reading Want a way to thank a veteran today?
Of the many reasons to tell a story, scaring the daylights out of a person probably makes the 10 list. It makes sense, then, that a number of the shows this month happen to have that theme. Then there are shows like All The Feels, The Good Girl Chronicles, and Health's Angles that are advocating … Continue reading Oct Storytelling Shows
I love getting people involved in telling and listening to stories. So much so, I tend to forget to tell be that I tell stories too! I get to into every single show I tell you about, but I am lucky enough to tell once or twice. This month I plan to try The Moth … Continue reading Have You Heard One Of My Stories?
