11/03/2010 Andrew’s Philadelphia Rite of Passage

Name: Andrew Thompson
Slam won: Dates to remember
What was the last thing you won (story slam not included)?
A four day vacation from work.
In honor of FPA’s 10 year anniversary in 2011 – Tell us a story in 10 words.
Thought gold stars were worthless until I stopped getting them.
What would your dream theme be for a Storyslam? What story would you tell?
It would be called “New beginnings,” and it would be about the time my boss was eaten by wolves.
Who do you know that tells the worst (or best) stories?
The best stories are from my former colleague at City Paper, Isaiah Thompson.
Why are you a good storyteller? (aka why should your competitors be scared?)
Two different questions. I’m a good storyteller because people pay me to do it professionally. They should be scared because I’ve killed 12 men.
