“As a parent chaperone on a school field trip, you have one job and that is returning to the school with the same number of uninjured children that you started with.” –Jason, Winning Storyteller- “Criminal” StorySlam

Our winning storyteller from last night’s Slam, Jason has thrown in the towel after 10 years of working as a public school teacher. His story is a highlight reel of some of the most memorable experiences that contributed to his decision switch career tracks.

“Having a car alarm is like having a baby sitter that just prank calls you all the time.” – Sean, Audience Favorite Storyteller – “Criminal” StorySlam

The advantage to living above a parking lot in an area of the city with a bustling night life is you get to share the responsibility of calling the cops with your neighbors. Watch Sean‘s Audience Favorite Story and find out what drove him to make his first-ever 911 call.
