On the first Thursday of every month...

trh_2016-04-07...you get to toss back a few and hear some harrowing true tales that will make your own life seem almost ...normal.

Okay, your life will never seem normal, but you’ll be comforted to learn it’s not just you who has Madame Weirdness forever tugging at your sleeve.

Bawdy, tawdry, rowdy, remorseful, funny, touching, tender, or sad - all stories are welcome as long as they are at least 94% true. And each month we select one “guest teller” from the audience!

LET US KNOW IF YOU HAVE A STORY YOU'D LIKE TO TELL AT "THAT REALLY HAPPENED???"

teller

Guidelines:

  • It's a story (not a rant, philosophical statement, poem)
  • It's a true story from the teller's own life.
  • 10 minute maximum length.

We prefer that stories be shared without a script or notes, but we can make exceptions. Our tellers range from first-timers to professionals, from stand-and-talk types to full-blown dramatic presenteurs. With your consent. we’ll record you performance and give you a professional quality recording.

Feel free to bring your own beverages! The Monkey House does not sell any type of refreshments. We will provide openers, ice and cups.
