“Pride” Comes Before a Laugh

We’re so excited to wipe the slate clean, and kick off a brand spankin’ new StorySlam season on Monday with the theme Pride! To help prime your palette, we’ve rounded up some of our favorite funniest tales on the theme.

#4 In her quest for coolness, Sara must obtain the highly coveted Beanie Baby known as Wrinkle.

#3 From catered picket lines to heckling her daughter’s grad school presentations, Marjorie’s mom can be counted on to embarrass. Through it all, Marjorie learns to be proud of her mom — quirks and all.

#2 Martha is a proud Philadelphian. But after getting lost in her own city, will her pride still be intact?

#1 As a 16-year-old mother, Mary doesn’t always feel equipped or ready for parenthood. Today, she’s proud of both her journey and her son.
