The Best of the Bad Ideas

This past Tuesday night, First Person storytellers slammed the best of their “Bad Idea” stories based on real life at L’Etage. From drunken haircuts, to horseback riding in shorts, to bringing a psychotic miniature horse to a mental hospital, ten storytellers had only five minutes each to share about their most brilliant blunders.

The story that rose to the top at Tuesday night's Slam was another moving and artful piece by popular First Person storyteller, Ben. His heartfelt story puts the audience in the crowd of a street boxing competition in North Philadelphia and asks viewers to reflect on what it means to be a hero.

Audience Favorite, Andrew
