The competitive storytelling phenomenon that is StorySlam will host a special show as a part of the programme of the 2018 Dublin Podcast Festival.

The StorySlam sets members of crowd against one another as they compete to tell the best story on a given theme. If your name is drawn from a hat, you will have the chance to recite your story. Then there are simple rules to follow: you must do it from memory, and – though this is much harder to verify – it has to be true.

A panel, also drawn from the audience, then gives the story its marks and at the end of the evening, as well as being thoroughly entertained, you might have won the StorySlam too.

With host Colm O'Regan providing comic havoc as MC and competitors sparring for the StorySlam title, it'll be a dynamic evening full of amazing displays of storytelling prowess.
