Event Description

Hosted by Alan Olifson

Speakeasy invites some of Pittsburgh’s funniest storytellers to tell a true story while DJ Fadewell and musician Feralcat along with a full band of local musicians provide a real time soundtrack. But when the story ends, we’re just getting started. Host Alan Olifson (Moth, WordPlay) takes you behind the story, interviewing each storyteller to ask the burning questions you’d ask if you were sitting next to them at the bar. It’s Late Night for the NPR set.

Featuring guest storytellers: 

  • Melanie White: Melanie White has a rich background in the performing arts, communications, and academia. After growing up in the South, she found the light and her people when she moved to Pittsburgh. With a Ph.D. in Communication, Melanie has enjoyed a successful career in the classroom as a professor, most recently at Florida A&M University. Melanie discovered her love of theater at a young age and developed a passion for the stage that has stayed with her. After relocating to Pittsburgh, she continued to pursue her love of performance as a comedian. She can be found performing at Arcade Comedy, Brillobox and other comedy venues around the city.
