Lip Service/Storypalooza!

You’ll laugh. You’ll cry. You’ll cringe.

Lip Service: True Stories, Out Loud is a live reading event dedicated to presenting the smartest, hottest, and most honest storytelling event in South Florida. Twice a year, Lip Service solicits true stories from the community. From those submissions, Lip Service selects eight stories. Lip Service producers work with the storytellers to edit and rehearse their stories in order to prepare them to be presented in front of a live audience. Lip Service stories are hilarious, heartbreaking, poignant, embarrassing, inspiring, and all true!

Storypalooza! is Lip Service’s open-mic event. Participants present a written 500-word true story and get instant feedback from the Lip Service editing pros.
