I did not get on stage at the Moth. They had ten spots and thirteen entrants. But I got to hear a really bad joke told on the Moth stage. Instead of a true story some douche bag told a joke about fucking a girl in a wheelchair. There may have almost been a fight after the show because that was wildly inappropriate for a couple reasons

Ugh, that's such bad luck. I'm sorry to hear. The one Moth Storyslam that happened in Anchorage was really good, and I got lucky because there were 20 entrants for 10 slots. I really hate the lottery format, but they probably do that so people don't leave after telling their story.

The last two were just awful so the lottery format definitely had some issues. But overall the stories are generally pretty good.

My life since February

The next theme works really well for it too

Good luck! I love listening to Moth stories. It was actually my secret gettaway time at Burning man, when I needed to chill out by myself. Found the open mic and would just chill there drinking beer and listening for hours during the burning heat of the day.

I wish I could hear yours :)
