Tell Me A Story at Shot Tower Coffee

Tell Me A Story is a bi-monthly, storytelling comedy show produced and hosted by Hillary Rea. Each show features 6 to 8 storytellers —a mix of comedians, personalities, writers and artists. Each event is curated to showcase a range of experiences from a variety of backgrounds. Join host Hillary Rea for an evening of secrets spilled, confessions blurted, and memories shared.

As a regular attendee of just about every storytelling show around, I unabashedly tell everyone that Tell Me A Story is my favorite one. The pacing of the event, Hillary Rea’s excellent curation of storytellers and the great venue all contribute to the wonderful experience of attending. I’m always looking forward to the next show.
