Dating on the internet is a lot.

We’ve all been there.

When’s the last time you swiped right? Is it a tale of happily ever after, happily for now, or the worst night of your life?

Share your truth about Online Dating—the joys, sorrows, and frustrations that online dating apps can bring.

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 team on 1/16 at World Cafe Live for a fun night filled with stories told by you–our audience–live on stage. The show starts at 8 pm.

We choose 4 lucky storytellers a week before the show, but the rest is up to the audience.
