Loren Niemi has not forgotten that he told his first formal story in First Grade to the disapproval of Sister Gemma and is glad to have been at it more or less nonstop since then. Contact him - 651-271-6349 / for coaching, directing or your own performance of his philosophical biased and emotionally nuanced stories.

As always, Story Club features both an open mic segment and a curated selection of stories from invited performers. Our stage showcases stories, like a slam, but with a more welcoming structure - no judges, no scores.

Story Club Minneapolis is spearheaded by hosts Jamie Amy Ann and Sam Ferree. Before each show, the host, whoever it may be, invites audience members to sign up for a raffle for one of four open mic slots. The show itself is the perfect mix of spontaneity with live theater thrills. Come and excite your ears!
