Ex Fabula: Firsts

Kimberly Ousley
Storyteller Kevin Barry

You never forget your first time. Your first day of school, first kiss, car, child, or first time on the Ex Fabula stage. As the summer comes to a close and we coo at our old school photos on social media, we thought we'd reminisce on a few of our favorite Ex Fabula “First” stories, as well.

Back in January of 2015 Ex Fabula held its first Secret Fabula of 2015 at The Brass Rooster Hat Company -  and Kevin Barry came prepared. With a synthetic bovine beauty worn like a crown, Kevin shared an endearing story of how that very hat led him to his very first date. So, how did it go? And has the lady lasted as long as the cap? Listen to find out.

Our next story comes from last April’s “Only In Milwaukee” StorySlam and first time Storyteller, Tiffany Kossow. Growing up in rural Wisconsin, Tiffany couldn’t wait until she was old enough to go off to college in the big city. And on the night before her first day as a college freshman, Tiffany tried to sleep in the attic of a powder keg. Listen to Tiffany's tale of an impromptu frat boy exorcism.

Our first official StorySlam of Season 9 is still over a month away (October 17th) but we are starting September with an important event in collaboration with the Milwaukee Art Museum. Ex Fabula: Power, Dissent, and Youth Empowerment. You can find more information on Ex Fabula's website.
