Once again, First Person Arts returns to BEN Around Philly to talk about their upcoming Ex Files Story Slam(s) on Valentine’s Day at Underground Arts. Tanesha Ford, Marketing Director for First Person Arts and local Philly comedian Alyssa Al-Dookhi join Kristen in the studio to talk about this 10th Annual Ex Files Story Slam, with two shows Friday, February 14th at 7pm and 9pm. Alyssa will will be hosting, along with John Deary. The two co-host a game show the last Saturday of every month called Makeup or Breakup, at Good Good Comedy (next show February 29th). First Person Arts Story Slams allow 10 random audience members to share their stories, based on that month’s theme, in a competition for Best Storyteller each month. Winners from each show get a $100 grand prize and a chance to compete in the GrandSlam in May. This Valentine’s Day, arrive prepared with a story about your ex (or exes), or simply listen to the 10 stories as an audience member and participate as an audience judge. The Ex Files Story Slam is super popular and both shows will SELL OUT. Get your tickets ($15) for either the 7pm or 9pm show (or both, as they’ll be completely different) at FirstPersonArts.org.
