Have you always wanted to get up on stage and share your embarrassing, crazy or greater-than-fiction story? Now’s your chance, as hosts Blaise Allysen Kearsley and Brad Lawrence present “How I Learned/Best In Show Blender” and give newbies a chance to not only enjoy five minutes of fame but also get “friendly, constructive feedback” on it from Al Jazeera America journalist Katherine Lanpher, “The Liar Show” host Andy Christie and “The Moth GrandSLAM” champion Aaron Wolfe. In addition to the story slam, featured storytellers include comedian Catie Lazarus, Flavorwire editor Tyler Coates and “Ask Me Stories” host Cammi Climaco. This event is free, but beverage purchases help benefit Housing Works’s mission to help New Yorkers with AIDS.
