The Houston Moth GrandSLAM

The Moth presents the GrandSLAM, a battle of wits and words – fierce, hilarious, heartbreaking and all points between.

The Moth is dedicated to finding intriguing people to tell inspired stories. At The Moth StorySLAM, those people find us. On this night, using words as weapons, they compete to determine the Houston Moth GrandSLAM Story Champion.



Since its launch in 1997, The Moth has presented thousands of stories, told live and without notes, to standing-room-only crowds worldwide.

At each StorySLAM, The Moth provides a stage, a microphone, a theme, and a host to guide the festivities. Storytellers toss their name into a hat and wait for their chance to share a crafted story from their life. If chosen, they have five minutes to regale the crowd. As with all Moth events, no notes or scripts are allowed.
