More about Back Fence PDX: RUSSIAN ROULETTE…
How it works: each show begins with a full wheel of juicy story prompts. One of the 6 storytellers will be randomly drawn. They spin the wheel to decide the prompt for their story. They can play or pass. If they pass another teller can steal their prompt. Then the risky part…each storyteller has only 5 minutes to come up with a true 5-minute story based on that prompt! It’s like we invented a new game called truth AND dare.

At the end of the night, the audience will select a winner who will receive

50 bucks provided by Skin by Marywynn, a pair of earrings and $25 GC to betsy + iya, a pair of tickets to Helium Comedy Club, $20 GC for Powell’s, sexy lip balm from Skin by Marywynn, a glass contained prize from New Deal Distillery, two tickets to Portland Center Stage, a gift certificate to Finger Bang, other cool prizes from our amazing local sponsors, and bragging rights for life. The storytelling winner will be invited to come back to the next show!

And one lucky audience member will also win all of the above prizes (except for the 50 bucks) plus $100 Popina Swimwear Gift Certificate and a GC for a pair of VIP passes to come back to a future show!
