A group of smart and sexy folks read their own romantic stories at a live-storytelling show.
True Tales of Lust and Love is a monthly storytelling event/reading series on the third Thursday of every month at Mbar, which has been raved about in The LA Times, The LA Weekly and Time Out LA, among other publications, and which will be released as a book from Counterpoint/Soft Skull in January.
Each month, we have five women or men telling or reading stories about lust, love and whatever falls in between. We’ve featured the comedians Maria Bamford, Jackie Kashian, Claire Titelman and Jen Kirkman; the bestselling authors Gigi Levangie Grazer, Jillian Lauren and Rachel Shukert; and the Emmy award winning TV writers Laura Krafft and Cindy Chupack, among many others. Our December 19th show will feature Hailey Boyle (Stand Up in Stilettos), Erica Schickel (the book You're Not the Boss of Me) and Greg Behrendt and Dave Anthony from the popular Walking the Room podcast. Though tickets for the show are always $10, we've decided to make this December show absolutely FREE as a holiday gift to attendees.
