This week's absolute MUST SEE is The Moth GrandSLAM show @ Echoplex. Photo courtesy The Moth.

If you're not familiar with The Moth, then shame on you. This long-running New York City / Los Angeles / touring show is an absolute fan favorite among comedians and writers and anyone who thinks they've got a good story to tell. Each month has a theme and if you want to try it out, you put your name in the hat. If you're chosen, you've got 5 minutes to tell a story, no notes or anything of the sort. Just tell a story, it's that simple. And yet, so much more complex.

This month's GrandSLAM is the culmination of many other storySLAM shows, and will ultimately decide the best storyteller in Los Angeles. If you're still unsure, get a sneak preview of their work on The Moth's podcast or on their website. This is, hands down, the show of the week to see. Tickets are only $15, which is roughly one movie ticket. Trust me, Cloudy With A Chance of Meatballs isn't going anywhere, but The Moth never stops.

As always, hit me up to promote your show. Big, small, involving an insect. Whatever. Full schedule after the jump...
