It's time to parody The Moth

The Moth is NYC’s longest running storytelling show that people either love or hate. Now, raconteur, Harmon Leon Leon (This American Life, TALE, Vice) brings you: The Muff: A Parody Show of The Moth

The Muff satirizes all the elements of a typical Moth show. You’ll see the storytelling types: The Crier, The Rambler, The First-Timer, The Stand-up Comedian, The Fake Newbie, and The Survivor - as 2 Theremins signal when its time to wrap up the story.

Come see the fake drama! The scoring! The drunken judges! The celebrity name-dropping host! And of course, the bucket – where all names will be picked.
