Ex Fabula: All-Stars Part Deux

Storyteller Jody Hirsh

If you joined us last week, you know that we’re counting down to our Season 8 finale, the Ex Fabula ALL STARS StorySlam on May 18th! In just a few short weeks, all of the Audience Favorites from Season 8 will take the Historic Turner Hall stage for a night of “Unfinished Business” and determine who will be the top audience favorite of Season 8. 

Today, we travel back to a warm November evening at Hot Water Wherehouse, when Jody Hirsch stole the show (and the crown) with his "It's Complicated"“ story.  As a single, gay man of a certain age, it seems his married friends are often eager to set him up with complete strangers. Listen to his hilarious story of one such set up,  when an innocent blind date got very complicated, very quickly.
