The Denver Moth – StorySLAM

January 20 @ 7:30 pm - 10:00 pm

All sales final.

VICES: Prepare a five-minute story about a wicked habit, a mild failing or a defect in your otherwise perfect self. Tell us what acts as kryptonite on your character! The ball and chain of developed habits and poisonous predilections. Give a special shout out to the backfiring virtues…when being too good is actually bad.

Prepare a five-minute story about lessons born of experience. Advice from elders, gurus, and sages. Knowledge gleaned from hard knocks or fortune cookies. Mistakes and successes, Confucius or Dr. Phil.

The Moth StorySLAMs are steadily spreading all over the map, gathering people and stories from all over the country. The Moth is open to anyone with a five-minute story to share on the night’s posted theme. The brave of heart, or those with stories they are aching to tell, prepare personal, true tales. When the doors open, storyteller hopefuls put their names in The Moth Hat. A half hour later, names are picked, and one by one, storytellers take the stage. Each person has just five minutes! The ten featured stories are scored by teams of judges selected from the audience. Each StorySLAM generates a StorySLAM winner. After ten SLAMs, the winners face off in our GrandSLAM Championships. Come sign up to tell a story, or just enjoy the show!

Moth StorySLAM members receive an early access password to access the next month’s tickets one month in advance. To become a Moth member, please visit The Moth Membership site for more details. General Admission tickets (non-Moth members) will go on sale at 1pm one week prior to the Moth StorySLAM of that same month.
