About the show

A specially curated show celebrating its long-running venue partner, Word Up Bookstore in Washington Heights. Co-hosted by Eric Vetter and Michele Carlo (author, Fish Out Of Agua), and featuring stories from Leighann Lord (”Star Talk” with Neil de Grasse Tyson), Mike Brown (Comedy Outliers), Maggie Nuttall (New York Frigid Festival) and No Name & A Bag O' Chips founder Eric Vetter, with tunes from Miles Alexander Blue Spruce, trivia, prizes and more.


Last year’s inaugural StoryFest was a solid sold-out weekend. Curated by The PIT in tandem with international storyteller Harmon Leon (TALE, Big Fat Racist Show), StoryFest is a three-day festival that celebrates the very best of the NYC storytelling scene.

StoryFest aims to spotlight the wide variety of themed shows that dot the New York landscape - and trumpet what's best about our storytelling scene.
