Taboo Tales is a storytelling show with the motto “The more we all talk about how f*cked up we are, the more normal we all feel”. My friend and fellow writer/comedian Corey Podell started the show in 2010 because we were sick of not feeling comfortable being ourselves in public. We wanted a forum for speaking the truth. Now, it’s a safe space for spilling secrets. Some of our storytellers are seasoned professionals, guaranteed to make you laugh and cry. Some are people who have never been on stage before. They come to us with a secret they want to let out. We help them shape their secret into an emotional comedy essay, and they get it out in front of a sold-out audience.
