V.15 - Wee Johnny's Irish Pub 
In this painstakingly researched anthology of (possible) 100% made-up stories, J.D. Renaud (Wpg Comedy Fest, Oddblock, DNTO) hopes to answer the age-old conundrum of the modern storyteller. Since most 'true' stories are mostly full of lies, don't you think we deserve to be more creatively lied to?
The new show from the writer/director of Damn Your Eyes (5 Stars - CBC) and My Dreams Are Stupid (4 STARS - CBC).

Story Hole

Bessie-Jean Productions—Wee Johnny’s Irish Pub

I’ve always enjoyed local Comedian/Artist/Storyteller J.D. Renaud’s shows and he is usually one of the first shows I go to see. Those familiar with him will know him for his great stories with accompanying primitive, yet hilarious, cartoons and the sometimes deeply personal revelations. In this year’s show he shares the art (and subterfuge) of how to tell a great story. He talks about the kinds of stories that are great, what makes them great, what can ruin a story and how the story doesn’t have to be about the storyteller, all while spinning several funny (and sometimes sad) yarns as examples. He really has mastered the craft, and the audience get transported into the stories. If you haven’t seen one of his shows and want to see some great storytelling you should add him to your list.

The venue itself can be a little warm, but it is licensed so drinks are available.

“Hey. Just tell them to write ‘Please come see my show’. It’s called STORY HOLE. It’s a comedy show where I tell weird stories and, uh… things like that. I made My Dreams Are Stupid (2016) and Damn Your Eyes (2014), so if you saw and liked those, see this one, too. Similar vibes. It’s every night of the Fringe at 7pm. There’s a bar. I’m terrible at this, just… ugh… just say it’s good, alright? Jesus.” – J.D. Renaud
