Since its launch in 1997, The Moth has presented thousands of true stories, told live and without notes, to standing-room-only crowds worldwide. Moth storytellers stand alone, under a spotlight, with only a microphone and a roomful of strangers. The storyteller and the audience embark on a high-wire act of shared experience which is both terrifying and exhilarating. Since 2008, The Moth podcast has featured many of our favorite stories told live on Moth stages around the country. For information on all of our programs and live events, visit themoth.org.

Stories are life!
I love listening to the different stories of all types of people. I just went to the Grand Slam Finals in SF and the storytellers and stories were incredible. It’s an honor to witness the vulnerability, humor, wit, honesty, grief, joy - all the feels that humanize us! Thank you to The Moth for keeping all of these memories alive!
What can I say
This storyteller show is engaging and engrossing and downright addictive!
