$100 CASH PRIZE EACH NIGHT


“Bada Bing Bada Boom” celbrates and showcases local storytellers in a FUN and friendly atmosphere where they have the opportunity to win some money!  


You deserve to get paid for your art!
​ 
Each event showcases 4 invited storytellers and we pull 3 names at random to give audience members
a chance to share their story. 
 
Consider the following guidelines below before placing your name into the pot:
The story should 5-6 minutes in length.  If you exceed 6 minutes, you can finish your story but you will not be eligible for “Favorite Story of the Night”.  In other words, if you go over in time, you can’t win the cash.
  • The story should be TRUE and autobiographical (it actually happened to you)
  • The story MUST BE MEMORIZED with NO NOTES
  • You can talk about sex but please - nothing too graphic
  • The story must be 6 minutes in length or shorter
 
At this time there are no topics or themes, just bring any story you feel inspired to share.  
Remember – the more people in attendance, the bigger the pot so SPREAD THE WORD and invite your friends.

"As a participant I loved how well organized and fun the evening was and as a viewer I was touched by each and every story.  'Bada Bing' is a delightful break from our iphones and ipads; it's a way to connect with others and share universal feelings and truths and remind ourselves that we are all connected."
