Mother Knows “Best”

Has your mother ever told you the “how you were born” story? Did she leave out the part about the hot anesthesiologist? The winning storyteller from last night’s StorySlam didn’t! Hear Tunia’s winning story about the best and worst moments of motherhood in the video below. The theme of the Slam was “Best Ever.” Don’t miss what our friends at Philebrity had to say about Tunia’s story here.

Tunia was one of ten audience storytellers who were chosen to tell their true 5-minute stories for a packed house at L’Etage Cabaret. With her was seasoned First Person Arts Storyteller, Bill. Bill’s animated story about a giraffe loose on Nasa’s runway and how he learned aerospace engineering was not his gift won the audience’s hearts and was voted the Audience Favorite story of the night.

Congratulations Tuhina and Bill! Special thanks to all of our “Best Ever” storytellers. Stay tuned for more videos of all of last night’s performances coming soon to the First Person Arts YouTube channel.
