Win Tickets ($40): Back Fence PDX: Russian Roulette @ Curious Comedy Theater | Storytellers Get 5 Minutes to Come Up With a True 5-minute Story Based on Random Prompt

We are giving away a pair of tickets to Back Fence PDX: Russian Roulette @ Curious Comedy Theater on September 26. To win, comment on this post why you’d like to attend. Winner will be drawn and emailed Monday, September 24.

Back Fence PDX: Russian Roulette

Curious Comedy Theater

How it works: each show begins with a full wheel of juicy story prompts. One of our 6 seasoned storytellers will be randomly drawn. To determine the random prompt for their story, they will spin the giant game show wheel. They can play or pass. If they pass another teller can steal their prompt. Then the risky part… each storyteller has only 5 minutes to come up with a true 5-minute story based on that prompt! It’s like we invented a new game called truth AND dare.

The audience votes for a winner at the end of the night. The winner also draws an audience winner — both get over $250 of booty from our sponsors and partners including a gift certificate and jewelry from Betsy & Iya, a tasting certificate from New Deal Distillery, tickets to Portland Center Stage, tickets to Helium Comedy Club, $20 to Powell’s, dots from Saint Cupcake, treats from Alma Chocolate, tea from The Jasmine Pearl, a treat from New Seasons, and $10 to Civic Taproom!
