Halloween is kind of a big thing for me.
As a storyteller, October is my busiest month, and I am booked solid for most of the month. Some of my bookings for October occur months in advance, and my calendar fills up very quickly. I imagine it is the same for many storytellers in the area. For whatever reason, people are more open to hearing stories in October.
I’m sort of saying this as a public service announcement. You see, I am getting more and more inquiries asking if I can come perform at people’s Halloween parties the closer we get to Halloween. I got another one today. On October 25.
I’ve sort of, kind of, been booked for Oct 31 since, like, August.
So if any of you out there are thinking about getting a storyteller on Halloween itself (which is a great idea and I whole-heartedly endorse it), don’t wait until the week before Halloween to book your entertainment. The only storytellers available by then will be twitchy, wart-covered drunks named Blurty Blurt-Blurt. And he’s really bad. Trust me.
