The Moth hosts live storytelling events in cities around the world.

Virtual StorySLAM

A virtual open-mic storytelling experience that invites up to eight tellers to share a true, personal story on a given theme. The SLAM ends with the audience voting for their favorite story, crowning the StorySLAM winner!

Virtual Mainstage

A curated storytelling show featuring four tellers who develop and shape their stories with our directors. Coming to life in the virtual space and guided by a host, each teller shares their story from their home streamed live into the living room of our viewers.

Virtual SLAM Showcase

The Moth's Play it Again, SLAM Showcase brings together eight beloved StorySLAM favorites to re-share their stories, directed anew by The Moth's artistic team for a virtual audience.

Virtual GrandSLAM

The virtual GrandSLAMs are storytelling competitions that bring together eight SLAM winners from Eastern, Central and Western time zones to compete for the title of GrandSLAM winner in their respective region.

Mainstage

Curated events featuring five tellers who develop and shape their stories with our directors. Beyond theater, The Moth Mainstage is a community where entertainment and enlightenment merge.

StorySLAM

Community-focused, open-mic storytelling competitions in which anyone can share a five-minute story on the night’s theme.

GrandSLAM

Ten StorySLAM winners in a given city are invited to take to the GrandSLAM stage for the ultimate storytelling competition.

Special Events

Each year The Moth presents two benefits featuring a special show and party: The Moth Ball and the Moth Members' Show.

Education

Featuring high school and college students who have participated in Moth workshops in their schools.

Community

Showcases of storytellers from a wide range of populations, community organizations and non-profits.

Audience and Age
The Moth has no age minimum, though some of our venues do. That said, if you are thinking of bringing a young person to one of our events, we encourage you to first consider the following: 
• StorySLAMs and GrandSLAMs are open mic; The Moth does not control the content or know what story is about to be told on stage. 
• Some of the tellers share raw and explicit stories that are very much meant for an audience aged 16 years and older. 
• Some of the tellers share raw and explicit stories that are meant for mature audiences and might include the use of profanity.

In response to concerns about the COVID-19:
The Moth is continuing to monitor the developments closely and will conduct business as usual—including presenting planned shows and programs—unless otherwise advised by country or state health departments, or the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Please check your specific event location or page for updates.
