Story Salon Live

Series produced by Joseph Dougherty

Series image

Intimate writing/performing from the eclectic storytelling venue.

Story Salon began in a North Hollywood coffee house in 1996. The rules of the show are simple: Five to seven minutes of original material performed by the writer. This open policy, embracing a sort of "free-range" writing, results in one of the most eclectic hours of performance available.

The stories in this series are a sampling of Story Salon's wide range of performers. The result is a unique blend of memoir and observation; sometimes funny, sometimes confessional, often controversial, always unique.
