I Quit StorySlam Live!

Underground Arts Get Directions

“I quit!”  Two little words can change the course of your life.  Share the story of that job for THAT boss you just couldn’t take anymore. Dish on the relationship that fell apart after years of trying. Inspire the “most engaged audience in Philly” with how you overcame imposter syndrome. We all have an “I quit!” story to tell.  

Join First Person Arts at Underground Arts on May 21 for our “I Quit!” StorySlam and get ready to laugh and cry as Philly gets real–live on stage!  Tickets are just $15.  Take the stage to share your true, personal story about those moments when you wanted to shout “I quit!”  

Never been to a First Person Arts StorySlam before? No problem. First Person Arts StorySlams are like open mics for people who love stories. We provide a theme, and you provide a 100% true, personal story. You’ve got 5 minutes on stage to entertain the “most engaged audience in Philly.” No notes or props allowed.  

Our host, Philly’s comic and award-winning goof, Betty J Smithsonian as she keeps things light and fun. Our judge, comic Lamarr Todd, a mystery guest judge, and an audience judge help score the stories and give our storytellers helpful hints to improve their tales. The winner takes home $100 and bragging rights until next month.  

Join Betty, Lamarr, and the whole First Person Arts team on 5/21 at Underground Arts for a fun night filled with stories told by you–our audience–live on stage. The show starts at 8pm.  

Got an “I Quit!” story ready and want a guaranteed spot on stage? Send us your first line to [email protected]. We choose 4 lucky storytellers a week before the show for a guaranteed spot to compete.  Doors open at 7pm. Underground Arts is located at 1200 Callowhill Street in the Spring Garden neighborhood.
