Starry Telling

OK, so while storytelling isn’t always necessarily comedy, we know of enough Milwaukee comedy talent involved with Ex Fabula to suspect that the season finale All Stars event will be one of many places for laughter Thursday.
From Facebook: 
“Audiences heard these stellar storytellers at Ex Fabula’s StorySlams at the Times Cinema in Washington Heights, at Stonefly in Riverwest and Club Garibaldi in Bay View and now these crowd favorites will return to the stage to share a brand new story on a brand new theme – ‘Lost In Translation!!!’ “
The All Stars include:
  • Carl Fuerst
  • Becca Segal
  • Jennifer Evenson
  • Rich Christensen
  • Molly Snyder
  • Linda Cieslik and
  • Dave Hendrickson

Story time is 7:30 p.m., Thursday, May 16, at Turner Hall Ballroom, 1034 N. 4th St.

Admission is $12, and you can procure tickets by clicking here.
