About Moth Events

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

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

Open-mic storytelling competitions. Open to anyone with a five-minute story to share on the night’s theme. Come tell a story, or just enjoy the show!

GrandSLAM

After ten StorySLAMs in a city, the winners then compete for the title of GrandSLAM Champion with a brand new story. This is the ultimate battle of wits and words.

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. 
• Many of the tellers use profanities that may be offensive to children and their parents.
