We’ve all had those moments when we’ve felt like a total faker. When our insecurities told us that we were imposters. When we thought it was true love, but it turned out to be just an illusion.

We are bombarded by fake images of fake people who create fake news that makes us question our sense of reality.

Join First Person Arts at World Cafe Live to share your true story about faking it!

Tell us about that time you faked your way through a test, a job, or just life in general.

Bring all your tales of imposter syndrome, fake love, and photo editing fails to the First Person Arts Faking it StorySlam at World Cafe Live on 4/23 at 8pm.

Tickets are just $15.

Get ready to laugh and cry as Philly gets real–live on stage!


Never been to a First Person Arts StorySlam before? No problem. First Person Arts StorySlams are like open mics for people who love stories. We provide a theme, and you provide a 100% true, personal story. You’ve got 5 minutes on stage to entertain the “most engaged audience in Philly.” No notes or props allowed.

Our host, Philly’s comic and award-winning goof, Betty J Smithsonian as she keeps things light and fun. Our judge, comic Lamarr Todd, a mystery guest judge, and an audience judge help score the stories and give our storytellers helpful hints on how to improve their tales. The winner takes home $100 and bragging rights until next month.

Join Betty, Lamarr, and the whole First Person Arts team on 4/23 at World Cafe Live for a fun night filled with stories told by you–our audience–live on stage. The show starts at 8pm.

Already got an idea brewing and want a guaranteed spot on stage? We choose 4 lucky storytellers a week before the show for a guaranteed spot to compete. Send us your first line to stories@firstpersonarts.org.

Doors open at 6 pm. World Cafe Live is located at 3025 Walnut St, Philadelphia, PA 19104 in University City.
