Orlando Story Club is a live storytelling competition that takes place at The Abbey in downtown Orlando. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, all our events occur at CityArts Orlando (39 S Magnolia Ave).
Every Orlando Story Club event has a theme. Anyone with a story that fits with that theme can enter by putting their name in the story hat. Ten names are drawn at random. Each storyteller is given 5 minutes to impress the audience, and the top 3 tellers take home prizes.
It’s a night of laughter, fun, and connection!
Join us for our not-so-serious storytelling competition! Come laugh, listen, drink, and help build our community!

If you aren't interested in telling a story, we love story listeners! We have an activity that everyone can participate in. What's a one-liner?
- It is an anonymous story (true to the storyteller) that can fit on one notecard and relates to the theme of the evening.
- For example, if the theme is "Past Our Bedtime," a one-liner is: "I truly thought there were monsters under my bed until I was in high school."
- Who reads these one-liners? Our awesome hosts, Danielle and Bobby, read them in between storytellers. Don’t worry. They won’t reveal your name!
