Non-Fictional Vortex of Storytelling Magic

February 19 marks Tell It: Brooklyn’s 26th show! Can you believe it?

We can’t. It actually feels like we’ve done way more than that. Over the years we’ve had the honor of hearing the most heartfelt, hysterical, awe inspiring stories from people from all over the city, as well as this one dude from Germany once. At the rate of about 10 tellers per show, we’ve heard nearly 2500 stories since November of 2011 and honestly can’t wait to hear 2500 more.

So, let’s get the hell on with it.

Join us THIS WEDNESDAY. February 19 at The Fifth Estate on 5th Avenue at 13th Street in South Slope, Brooklyn.

The can goes down at 7:30 & the show starts at 8. Remember: No props, no paper and no lies (hyperbole notwithstanding).

And of course … NO COVER.

See you soon!


It’s a Cruel, Cruel Winter

Like you probably know, Victoria left me here on my own for an indeterminate amount of time, but that’s a good thing. As I mentioned at the last Tell It: Brooklyn, we’re hoping not to see her face until the March show.

Still I miss her. Who is Gracie Allen without George Burns? Rose Nylund without Dorothy Zbornak? Who is any adorable sidekick without her curmudgeon-y wiseass?

Hosting Without Victoria is Ruff

We have heard from her since she left, and things are going well – so send Victoria all your good vibes then come out to our next show, Wednesday, February 19 and be my co-host by proxy.

Follow our Facebook Page for updates and to be invited to our events.

See you soon!








A Più Tardi, Victoria! Exciting Things Afoot at Tell It: Brooklyn

Tell It: Brooklyn’s next storytelling open mic is coming up this Wednesday, January 15 and for the first time in over two years, Victoria won’t be in attendance.

She’s got a good reason … but we can’t tell you.

Let it suffice to say that she’s cooking up something big, so she’ll be sequestered away for a bit. 

Meet us out at Andrew Linderman’s Local Stories on Tuesday, January 14 to wish Victoria a bon voyage and enjoy her last NYC performance before hitting the road. Then, come to Tell It: Brooklyn on Wednesday to console Susan as she tries to hold it down solo-style while Victoria serves up magic on the fly.

TONIGHT! Wednesday, Nov 20 | Tell It: Brooklyn Turns 2

Wednesday, November 20th, Tell It: Brooklyn celebrates it’s 2nd Anniversary at The Fifth Estate in South Slope. Plus, Susan & Victoria tell personal tales for the first time in over a year! Can drops at 7:30, show starts at 8. (As always, it’s totes FREE.)


When we think back to the days when the Tell It audience consisted of the 5 friends we forced out to The Way Station every month, it’s incredible to believe we’re here 2 years and over 200 stories later.

Since our humble beginnings, we’ve made a lot of new buddies, featured a bunch of incredible storytellers and drunk a buttload of whiskey … all of which made for more stories to tell later. 


Get it?

This week we’re celebrating our second anniversary by performing our own stories on the Tell It:Brooklyn stage for the first time in over a year.

What’s better is that not only do Victoria and I plan to regale you with our own personal tales, we’ll be putting out our brand new, all-time favorite can (click the link for a hint) so you can entertain us right back with yours.

Seriously, you guys. The new can is AWESOME.

So, come on out THIS WEDNESDAY! NOVEMBER 20th and celebrate with us. We’ll have raffle prizes, party favors and we’ll be sharing the Southern delicacy that currently occupies the aforementioned brand new, all-time favorite can.

Hell. We might even have cake.
