We’re getting to know the storytellers that are competing for the crown of “Best Storyteller of Philadelphia” on Wednesday, May 25 at the Summer Grand Slam.
At our Anti-Valentine’s Day Slam, Steve won the audience’s heart when he told a story that can be encompassed in one joke: What do engineer students use as birth control? Want to hear the answer? Watch Steve tell the whole story below!
Name: Steve Noble Current Location: Haddonfield, NJ Slam won: The X-Files (Audience Favorite) Favorite Philly summer activity: Phillies baseball (and cheesesteaks) What’s your dream StorySlam theme: I am so embarrassed! Tell us a summer story in 10 words: You want me to do what? No way! Wait, YES! What makes a great story? One that makes me forget where I am and what I am doing. What makes a great storyteller? Someone who uses words to get inside my soul, so that I am experiencing the story. Why should your competitors watch their backs? Brain damage. Research has shown that the more damage participants had in the area of the front part of the brain called the pregenual anterior cingulate cortex, the less mortified they were about singing karaoke. I sing at a karaoke bar every week.
