Buckle up and Enjoy Your Flight!

Last night's “Small World” StorySlam winner and Audience Favorite, Deniz, reminded us all that sitting next to a drunk Russian on an airplane is definitely funnier in retrospect. (Now it makes sense that he's so scared to fly.) Cheers, Deniz! At least you got a story out of it!

Because Deniz has already won a StorySlam this season and is scheduled to compete in the Grand Slam, last night's second place winner, Kate, was awarded the Golden Ticket and the chance to compete for the title of “Best Storyteller in Philadelphia” at this year's Fall Grand Slam at the First Person Festival in November.

Check out video from Deniz's winning perf

ormances below! Don't miss what Philebrity had to say about Deniz's story. Stay tuned for more videos from Kate and all of our “Small World” storytellers coming soon to the First Person Arts YouTube Channel.
