There’s this interesting little place in NYC called “The Moth” that allows people to get on stage and tell a story, usually around 15 minutes or so. Let me just say, these stories are usually completely hilarious (there’s a few sad ones in there though) told by people from all walks of life (from Moby to a man who owns a pizza shop).
I’d highly recommend checking them out here. Richard DiSalvo’s “Anthony The Hat” is a good place to start. I’ve listened to them all (the one’s posted that is), and I’m craving for more. Luckily they just put out a podcast I’d urge all to check out. Oh, and if the name sounds familiar, that’s because “The Moth” is often featured on “This American Life”.
