Long Story Short - A Night of Comedic Storytelling Hosted by Megan Gazzo
Long Story Short - A Night of Comedic Storytelling Hosted by Megan Gazzo
Hi there. I am Megan Gazzo , local Portlander- a native east coast italian-american. I have always had a knack to notice how funny life can be, and found myself on the path of being a comedian since I was a wee sprout. From stand up-to sketch comedy- I have always felt most comfortable on stage bringing laughter to the people. Laughter is the bridge that connects us all- all ages, races,genders,backgrounds.Throughout my years of experience in the comedy , I have found to be one of the most valuable techniques to exemplify life's sheer hilarity is through the art of storytelling. I love the raw humility and community engagement that ensues when people can come together and be honest with each other, and share our humaness in the art of storytelling. From my deep adoration for storytelling has birthed my concept for a comedic night of storytelling entitled, " Long Story Short."

Long Short Short is a comedic night of storytelling that is a non-judgemental storysharing event. From sex positive, to nerve wracking virginity- from raw to sweet, you can feel comforted to share anything under the sun in this space and know that you can be unapologetically honest, so long as it is not offensive to race,gender,etc and will be accepted and warmly applauded for doing so. We all have stories . Stories are like our fingerprints- no two are the same and they are all unique to us. Long Story Short will be a two hour show.Each show will have theme so that the storytellers have a parameter to work within. The theme of this first show is " Mistaken." Have you ever thought you were in a certain situation or had an expectation that ended in a completely opposite result? Have you ever been at the end of a game of telephone where the message got turnt? Have you , like so many of us, ever made an assumption without asking enough questions and got blindsided by a different situation at hand? Mistaken gives us the opportunity to share these stories and laugh about them. To participate , audience members will put their name in the bucket when they come in. We will choose at random, and stories are to be kept under 7 minutes. The storyteller will receive a warning of 30 seconds and then a signal when time is up. We will share approx 7 stories the first half and 7 stories the second half. We will take an intermission in between. That means 14 out of the 50 person capacity in the sunset room will be sharing stories. All audience members will have the chance to participate by writing one or two lines on the slips of paper with a prompt I pass out as they enter.Every 2 stories, Me as the host will read out the responses on the slips of paper. This always brings a ton of laughter to the room. The idea is for the stories to be funny, sex positive, weird, crazy, unlikely- however if someone's story is not exactly any of those things they are still welcome to share.
