Raw stories and real spit rule the mic during “TMI Storytelling”, an unpolished monthly show on funny, provocative topics the fourth Thursday of the month. Bay Area comedian Gina Gold presents this comedic series which features a rotating cast of storytellers giving a unadulterated, often hard-core look at life. You’ll hear 10-minute tales of heartbreak and woe, peppered with humorous asides and serious commentary from a different lineup each show. As host, Gold will keep the heartfelt and brutally honest show flowing.
