    True Story is a comedic storytelling show. Funny people tell funny stories based on an arbitrarily chosen theme for the night.


    Thanks to all of YOU who came out to True Story on Sunday night! Brian Fikelstein knocked it out of the park. Martin Torner was hilarious as always! We got to hear from Jodi Skeris and Steve Kaufmann! And Damon Pfaff charmed the pants off of everyone with his guitar moves. 

    I think we’ll have to do it again.
