The Mouth-Off: “Love at First Bite” with Chion Wolf

November 9 • 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm


Humans have a lot in common – DNA, respiration, and eating food! Come tell and hear stories on the theme, “Love at First Bite – stories about food”, at The Mouth-Off at the Mark Twain House & Museum hosted by Chion Wolf on Friday, November 9th at 7:30pm!

Do you have a story about food you’d like to tell? Email with your name, and a short description of what your story is about. No need to write every detail, just a few sentences to get us curious. Submissions close a week and a day before the event, but the sooner you can email, the better!

Your story must be FEWER THAN 10 MINUTES. It usually takes longer to tell your story than you think! Tell it a few times to friends, refine it, and time it! During the event, you’ll see Chion in the front row with a fancypants iPad that will count you down. If you go over the time limit, she’ll tackle you in front of everybody (IN HER MIND).

***STORIES ARE TOLD WITHOUT NOTES! You just get up there and tell the tale off the top of your head***

***STORIES ARE REAL! Not that we’ll be doing any fact-checking, but this event features TRUE stories***

If you don’t get on the list, don’t take it personally! It’s our loss, and hopefully we can hear from you at a future Mouth-Off!

There is also a “Wild Card”! After the fifth speaker finishes, Chion will ask volunteers to raise their hands and holler out a number. Those numbers are put into a hat/pocket/bowl/basket/crock pot/human skull, and whoever is chosen has a 5 minute limit to tell their story on that night’s theme before the final speaker goes on.

– $10 to get in (speakers and their plus-one get in free!)
– The event audio is recorded, and your participation on stage doubles as permission to use the story in any broadcasts. If you are a speaker and want to keep your recording private, please let me know before the event is over.
– Profanity IS allowed, dammit!
– Have an idea for a theme in the future? Have something on your mind about The Mouth-Off? Email
