This week on The Antidote – August 13th
Tomorrow night’s show wouldn’t have the lineup we have if it weren’t for Miyo Yamauchi! I noticed that she had been to the show a couple of times. One night during the show I asked her if she had any stories and sure enough she sent me an email and said she did! Not only did SHE have stories but she introduced me to her friends who also had stories to tell. I love it when fans of the show get to be IN the show.
The Antidote is a pop up storytelling show in response to the need for COMEDY in a time of chaos. In one jam-packed hour you’ll hear four humorous stories from storytellers, writers, comedians and actors with one promise, the stories have nothing to do with the pandemic.
This is not your children’s story hour. So, give the kids a puzzle; put on your earphones, grab your favorite drink and sit back and get ready to be entertained with a batch of fresh new stories each week.
The Antidote is hosted by Deanna Moffitt. CEO of Luminant Leadership and a Life and Mindset Coach. She was the host of two popular storytelling shows in Chicago before moving to Los Angeles. Often asked when she was going to start a show out here her response was always “when I can do it from my living room in my underwear”. The time has finally come.
