Radio Picture Show shakes up the Moth-like storytelling mold by requesting guests to seamlessly integrate a song or an image directly into the stories. For example, Laura Krafft played "She's Crafty" during a story about embarrassing herself in front of a Beastie Boy. Pretty clever. Local performers and writers Lauren Cook and Shauna McGarry host a hilarious, eclectic mix of comedians, writers and actors at this monthly storytelling showcase at the Virgil. Stick around after each show for Radio Disco Show, a themed, post-show dance party helmed by KCRW DJ Marion Hodges. The main series takes place on the second Wednesday of every month, but also look out for occasionally occurring productions at LACMA, where the stories will all be inspired by pictures—specifically, those hanging in the museum.
