DSS presents, hosted by comedian Colm O’Regan
The Dublin Story Spring Grand Slam 2020
The Dublin Story Slam is an open mic competitive storytelling night hosted monthly by comedian, author and broadcaster, Colm O’Regan.
Since it began in 2017, thousands of story-lovers have attended sold-out nights or listened to the Podcast to hear true, personal stories told by ordinary Dubliners and visitors? with extraordinary experiences. Now, eight of these Story Slam Winners from the last year will come together to share eight brand new stories and compete for the title of the very first Spring Grand Slam Champion 2020.
The theme of the evening will be Precious and will take place in one of Ireland's most treasured buildings, the spectacular Round Room at The Mansion House. On the night we'll be inviting our finalists to share a new personal true story inspired by something they hold dear. A bittersweet something or someone that they either took for granted or appreciate every day?
Their tales could be about the tiny throwaway objects that they could never throw away, or something epic that's worth fighting for. Stories could also be about how something precious took over their life in a not so good way. Stories of obsession, of being over protective, infatuated by the wrong thing and all of which possibly came at a price. Whatever the story, expect to be dazzled, enthralled & enriched, as you join us for a night like no other & lose yourself in the story.
