Storytellers came out to this Story Slam with some fantastic tales of love, melancholy, break-ups, workplace weirdness and much more. Eight poets took the stage, and many newbies rocked the mic right, including Stephanie from the UK and Kat. And it was an awesome surprise to see Joe Dewar return to TPS, we haven't seen him in awhile!
Second round saw a nice variety of stories, from That Brown Bastard's tale of horrific nose-picking to Dave Silverberg's portrait of a breakup on the TTC to Stephanie's camping trip in B.C. But it was Noah Kaplan - member of the TPS Team - who took home the top prize and mad honours for winning this year's Story Slam.
Big shoutout to our feature for the night, Chris Masson from Montreal. Right from the first poem he gave us the hilarity we've come to expect from this excellent performer, along with some fine wordplay. Definitely one of Montreal's best!
Kudos to Valentino for the excellent hosting and props once again to the Drake for giving us a gorgeous venue on a Sunday night.
Look for the TPS Team's next show on JUNE 19 at Supermarket, the very first Truth or Dare Slam!
