Political TALE: Storytelling w/Politics

  • Caveat 21 A Clinton Street New York, NY, 10002 United States (map)

POLITICAL TALE is the finest in NYC political storytelling. Yes, it’s a storytelling show about politics, the political system, personal encounters with the Red State/Blue State madness, and the current messed-up state of Trump America.

POLITICAL TALE is an event that reflects how politics really screws with each and every one of us; as told through personalized stories.

POLITICAL TALE is not a traditional yuck-yuck political stand-up show filled with Trump jokes – but the first storytelling show in New York to focus on unimaginable encounters with the political world.
