Since our debut in January of 2017, First Person Live has given nearly 200 people (including open mic tellers)a chance to tell their stories on stage. Some are regulars at shows around Chicago, including Moth StorySLAMS; others have never been on stage in their lives. 


They're engineers and cab drivers, executives and students, dentists and farmers, teachers, mechanics, lawyers, ministers - we even have a congressman (Sean Casten, D-IL)! What they have in common is a story they feel moved to share. We are so grateful to them all. 

What story do you feel moved to share? Submit it here! We're always looking for new voices...and

new faces.
