Bad Company, ‘Til the Day I Die.

Storyteller Bernardo is next on our list to be featured in preparation for our Fall Grand Slam on November 10.

Bernardo won us over with his story about growing up in Colombia with his friend Juan and you definitely won’t want to miss him this November. Until then, watch his “bad company” story below.

Don’t forget to read about our other featured competitors here.

Name: Bernardo Morillo
Age: 43
Location: Philly
Slam won: Bad Company in August at L’Etage

What was the last thing you won (story slam not included)?
A dvd player at office party in 2004.

In honor of FPA’s 10 year anniversary in 2011 – Tell us a story in 10 words.
The world keeps changing. I am happily left behind.

What would your dream theme be for a Storyslam? What story would you tell?
Free style + no time limitations. Or let’s say 15 minutes!

Who do you know that tells the worst (or best) stories?
Both my Mom and my Dad.

Why are you a good storyteller? (aka why should your competitors be scared?)
I like telling stories, no one should be scared of anyone anywhere, but certainly not in a creative enterprise unfolding on a stage … because the stage is Sacred!  Is it fun to win? I sure like it. It’s also fun to be defeated by someone better, then, you get to learn something. It applies to everything except boxing.
