How Do You Like Me Now?

Didn't get it quite right the first time? Neither did our ten storytellers at Tuesday night's “Do Overs” StorySlam. We loved and lost a cartoon soul mate, declined the DMV worker's fig newtons, and reclaimed “Jewessness” in Moscow. But it was our winning storyteller who sent us strutting across the dance floor towards reunion redemption.

Nothing says “Do Over” like a high school reunion. When you find yourself swallowing your sixth grade pride, surrounded by all the people who witnessed the most awkward years of your life, there's only one thing left to do: ask to see baby pictures. Don't miss the winning story behind Kevin's

high school reunion redemption in the video below.

P.S. Kevin, I think everybody liked you…

Congratulations Kevin! Congratulations also to Audience Favorite, R. Eric Thomas. Stay tuned for more videos from all over our storytellers coming soon to the First Person Arts YouTube channel.
