The Cock and Bull is a storytelling event that runs across two venues, Horse Bazaar and Grumpy’s Green. The events strive to gather the best storytellers for a night of tales across one theme.
A “cock and bull” tale is a 17th century English pub custom of telling outrageous stories that dodge the truth in favour of a good yarn. With this event, all people telling stories try their best to tell true tales. The stories are different from comedy stand-up routines with yarn-spinners attempting to tell not only funny tales, but also very touching and serious moments.
Perhaps with slight embellishments? Judge for yourself tomorrow night at Horse Bazaar, where the event takes place every first and third Tuesday. The event takes place at Grumpy’s Green (on Smith Street in Collingwood) on the last Thursday every month.
This Tuesday’s storytelling event is hosted by James Rosier, and the theme for all told stories is “Lucky”.
Featured orators: Victoria Healy, David Boyle, Dan Juola, Danny Stinson, Natalie Harris, Thomas McMahon, Ricky Chaplin and Remy Coll. Each story goes for around five minutes.
I myself will be telling a tale here on Tuesday 19 November at Horse Bazaar on the subject word of MIsunderstandings, and will remind you all of this coming closer to the date.
Starts 8pm. Horse Bazaar, 397 Little Lonsdale Street, Melbourne CBD. Free!
