Nobody Beats Michael McCarry’s Mother

Close to 400 people packed the main auditorium of the Free Library this past Saturday for the 2nd Annual Inter-City StorySlam: Philly vs. DC. Our illustrious judges included Citizen Mom, NYT’s best-selling author Leslie Banks, Pulitzer Prize winning cartoonist Signe Wilkinson and the Inquirer’s fashion writer Elizabeth Wellington. And while the storytellers from Speakeasy DC claimed the title of Best Storytelling City, it was First Person Arts’ own Michael McCarry who claimed the title of Best Overall Storyteller AND Audience Favorite. Enjoy his video below!


UPDATED May 19th: We need your help to send Mike to the National StorySlam in Chicago. DONATE HERE!
