At 7:30pm - 10:30pm, Hackney picturehouse, London

Oh dear, here we go again: You’ve gotten yourself into a situation which you really don’t want to be in. Maybe you’ve left for holiday without your passport? Maybe you’re in the toilet and realize that there is no toilet paper? Whatever the pickle, we want to hear your story. Come along to tell a story, or listen in to the tales of being in a bit of a pickle.

Spark Open Mic - ‘D'OH!‘ • 15.8.16

At 7:30pm - 10:30pm, Upstairs at the Ritzy, London

You know it, we know it and they know it: that moment when your hand moves toward your head, only to land flat on your forehead and all you can think is: D’OH – OF COURSE, why didn’t I think of this! The stories tonight will be about that moment of realization – when you cannot believe that you didn’t think of “it” sooner.

Come and tell your story, or listen to the story by others of that ‘D’OH’ moment.

7.30pm/Doors £4

Spark Open Mic - I'ts Complicated • 12.9.16

At 7:30pm - 10:30pm, Hackney picturehouse, London

There are moments of perplexity, of bafflement and of utmost uncertainty. The thing is, that sometimes there is not a straight answer and one is necessitated to exclaim the complications of life and declare: It’s complicated.

The stories of tonight are about those tangled situations, moments or long periods where things are far from simple. Complicated? – Not at all. Just come on down and have a listen or even better: tell us your story.

7.30pm/Doors £4
