Natural Born Storytellers 'My First Time'

  • Backyard Comedy Club 231 Cambridge Heath Road E2 0EL UK (map)

Everything we've ever done we've had to do for the first time. Our first date, first day, first meeting, marriage, friend, heartbreak, time, family, pet, holiday, heartbreak and even our first kiss. Whatever story or image your first time conjours up, we'd love you to share it with us. Maybe it's even your first time on stage! We're sharing deeply personal stories so expect anything from tears of despair to rip-roaring laughter. Bring someone along for their first time at Natural Born Storytellers. 

Our true storytelling shows are friendly, open, intimate and honest and the stories moving, life-affirming, shocking, captivating or just plain hilarious. It's different to a comedy show where the expectation is laughter... here laughter comes, but it's a part of a whole breadth of other emotions and reactions to the stories and it makes for a rich, fulfilling evening's entertainment.

Anyone from the audience is encouraged to share true stories alongside pre-booked and professional storytellers. There is a great mix of stage experience on offer and it really adds to the spontaneity of the evening.

If you have a story you'd like to tell tonight or on any of our upcoming themes, please send an email to with an outline of your story and the theme you think it fits best.
“This was one hell of an evening. Like really properly captivating stories that enthralled, moved, tickled, challenged and above all entertained. Such a brilliant event” Audience member
Come on down and experience one of the friendliest and most memorable night of true-life storytelling London has to offer.
