BYO Story

BYO Story

Come enjoy Portland's best storytelling show at Al's Den every first Wednesday of the month. B.Y.O.Storytelling show is a curated cast of Portland's best and brightest comedic minds, who have been invited to Bring Their Own Story to the stage.  This is not your grandmother's mothball storytelling hour, there are no themes, no gimmicks, and it is not a competition judged by the dumb audience, it is just very talented people sharing their BEST story, for you!

Hosted and Produced by Portland's favorite gay uncle, Jay Flewelling, this show is guaranteed to entertain you and get you laid.

Did you miss the live show? Well don't fret! You can catch all of the live stories recorded and released weekly on the B.Y.O.Storytelling Podcast, found on most platforms. Subscribe and listen while at the gym, doing dishes, or having sex!
