Great StorySlam last night!

Thanks to everyone who came out for the “Caught” StorySlam last night. The house was packed as usual, and despite some really tough competition, Ted Passon came away with the victory! My thumbs are a little sore from live-Twittering the whole thing…Keep an eye on Uwishunu for the video of his ‘divine’ and ‘all-consuming’ performance.

Katonya Mosley had the crowd eating out of her hand and meditating on her fingers last night. Katonya won the “Secrets” slam back in May, so she, Ted, and all the winners will go head-to-head in a StorySlam battle royale at the First Person Festival, November 11th-16th at the Painted Bride. (So pick some other week for your Caribbean vacation).

Here’s Katonya from May:
