“You reap what you sow” is often the epilogue a so-called friend puts to one of those experiences where you’ve gotten in too deep, knowing, all along, that it could only end in disaster, but you just couldn’t help yourself. Sometimes these events leave a poignant sense of regret; sometimes, not so much.
AGTV is looking for true-life, first-person consequence stories for our show on April 22nd. We want your pitches for times when you’ve not only ignored the red flags, but gone roaring past them. Or perhaps you did a good turn for someone that came around to help you as well. Whatever the end result, we want to hear from you! Please send your pitches to email@example.com and one of our fabulous producers will get back to you.
To all you ghosts and goblins looking to get your shivers on: We could NOT be more excited about this year’s Halloween show! We have an all-star cast of FANTASTIC freaks guaranteed to amuse, frighten, and keep you up at night. Megan Sukys tells about a gift sent to her son – from beyond the grave! Willie Weir delivers a heart pounding remembrance of a night alone in a tent in the middle of a war torn El Salvador! And, making her spectacular return to the big stage, Jeannie Yandel explains why a ouiji board is not, not, NOT a toy! These, and three more stories of pulse-pounding excitement are not to be missed. If you go to only one show this year, go to this one – it may be your last!
The terror begins at 8:00pm on Tuesday, October 29th at the big room on the Theater Off Jackson.

We’re looking for YOUR ghost story for our next show on October 29. (Our plan to see you in August is now a plan to see you in October!) That spooky, ooky story you could never quite explain is the one we want to hear. Our annual ghost story show is always a big one and we want you to be part of it!
Please send us a pitch and we’ll get right back to you.
In Gary, Indiana a pool table seemed to bring about a great deal of trouble, but it was heroically avoided by an unlikely traveling salesman and his even more unlikely idea for a youth band. In the end it all worked out for the best and the salesman even got the girl! We all know this is not always the case. We get in trouble, we cause trouble, we attempt to avoid trouble.
Come hear true stories by the folks who have lived them, including Litsa Dremousis who almost gets away with something – until her Greek mother catches her in a delicate situation; Bruce Oberg’s close call with his health; Mary Purdy’s spring break arrest record and much more! Doors open at 6:30, and the show begins at 7:30, all on Tuesday, June 18th. Tickets are $10 on Brown Paper tickets or at the door of the Theater of Jackson in the International District. Because the show is held at a bar it is a 21 and over show and we will need to see your ID – yes, especially yours, troublemaker!
We are looking for stories for our next show, “Trouble”. Did you have a time where you got into (and maybe out of) trouble? Perhaps you caused it, or got someone else into it could use a little confessional. If you have a great troublesome story you’d like to tell, we’d like to hear it! Please pitch it to us and we’ll get right back to you.
Our show will be on June 18th, 2013 at 7:30 in the fabulous Theater Off Jackson.
Crisis intervention. Weight gain; weight loss. Losing all your friends. And ping pong. A Guide To Visitors presents “Know Thyself,” true stories of self-knowledge and how we acquire it. Tuesday April 30, 2013, 7:30PM at Theatre Off Jackson. $10.
Experiences that bring us self-knowledge are formative, memorable, and sometimes distressing. When we learn what we love, accept, tolerate, and reject, we learn who we are. What’s your story of knowing thyself? Pitch us your story and tell it onstage at our next show on Tuesday April 30, 2013 at Theatre Off Jackson.
Our lives are full of firsts, some that we remember (ex: first time driving a car, first love, first job), some we forget(ex: first word, first steps, first solid food) and of course some we choose to forget. Come hear true stories of people’s “Firsts”, such as Tracy Flynn who tells the story about the first time she attended a football game. Scott Champion’s story about the first time he D.J’ed at a wedding, and Ellen Bloom tells the story of when she first realized her father was not what she had thought he was. All true and told by the people who lived them. Show is Tuesday February 19th at the Theater of Jackson. Doors open at 7 pm and starts at 8:00 pm. Tickets are $10. You can buy them at the door or at the link below. Now I am going to quote Foreigner “It feels like the first time. It feels like the very first time.”
We remember the first time we did something because it was gross, shocking, awesome, or unwanted. The first time we do something is always the ending of a more innocent time. Come hear true tales of FIRSTS, Tuesday, February 19, 2013, at Theatre Off Jackson.
Our final show of 2012 is fast approaching. On Tuesday, December 4th, AGTV Presents – THE BEST OF. We are so excited to invite back some of our favorite storytellers to re-tell some of our favorite stories. Get your advance tickets here!
