The Mouth-Off With Chion Wolf
September 11 • 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm
The Mouth-Off, hosted by Chion Wolf, returns for five Fridays
If you have a story you’d like to tell email MouthOffHartford@gmail.com 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 two weeks 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.
Speakers and their plus-one get in for free.
Can’t get enough of The Mouth-Off? The podcast is here for you! Each has two stories, and typically run under 20 minutes: https://themouthoff.pinecast.co
