Story Story Lie Championships June 12th

21 May

StoryStoryLieJune12thIt’s the end of the season for the folks at Story Story Lie. That means, Championships! Their season finale brings back the year’s biggest winners to compete for the biggest prize of the year, best storyteller. Each storyteller will bring their most unbelievable story, which is pretty remarkable considering their winning stories include armed robbery, bar fights, role play, accidentally becoming a gang member and boy scouts gone bad.  But in the end there can only be one BEST storyteller.  Who will it be? Can you spot the liar?

This year’s Championships pits some great local talent against each other. They include:

 

Greame Duffy (Actor and Improvisor)
Melanie Rose (Yuk Yuks, Heavy Metal Comedy)
Ashlee Ferral (Vancouver Theatre Sports Rookie League )
Andrew Lynch (VAMP and Geeks Vs Nerds)
Montana Roselle (Dyck Spacee)
Claire Pollock (The Dirty Betty Show)

This event will sell out. So if interested in attending, advance tickets are recommended and available for $10 at the Rio Theatre. Or you can try you luck and grab tickets at the door for $12.

StoryStoryLie2019Story Story Lie is back at The Rio Theatre Wednesday, April 10th with The Hangover.  The hangover only lasts a day, but the stories last a lifetime. Story Story Lie has one simple premise: Vancouver’s best storytellers, comedians, and performers share high-stakes, near-impossible, unique stories that seem too tall to be true. The catch? Only ONE of the SIX stories is a lie. During the show audience members get to question the contestants in an attempt to reveal the liar. The first audience member to guess who the liar is, wins respect, admiration and an amazing prize! The line up of storytellers include:

Paul Anthony (Talent Time)
Graeme Duffy (Improv Against Humanity)
Emma Cooper (Rape is Real & Everywhere)
Ally Baharoon, (the stuttering story-teller)
Jessica Pigeau (Autistic comedian)
Lydia Rickards (British comedian)
Host:  Jo Dworschak

Note, due to the intoxicating subject matter this show is x-rated. For those that have never been, the show WILL certainly contain strong language, somewhat mature and immature subject matter. To purchase your advance tickets, visit Rio Theatre.
