The Moth StorySLAMs are our open-mic storytelling competitions, open to anyone with a five minute story to share on the night's theme. Our Miami StorySLAM series has been hosting monthly shows since 2015. This Fall, The Moth is proud to present our second Miami Spanish-language SLAM.

COCINAS: Prepara un relato de cinco minutos de una historia verdadera sobre el corazón de cada hogar, la cocina. La que huele a pastelitos recién salidos del horno, a malanga frita, o a leche cortada. Desastres de fogón o esplendores de microondas. El secreto del chef...y los chismes de la familia. La habitación más concurrida de la fiesta. Donde cada quién friega su plato....y donde lo que no mata, engorda.
Los asientos no son garantizados y solamente disponibles por orden de llegada. Todas las ventas son finales.

The Houston native is singlehandedly changing the comedy game, tapping into the minds of teachers around the world and selling out major arenas throughout the country in minutes!
The phenomenon, which began with a series of videos entitled “What Teachers Really Say” (written, produced, and starring Eddie B) has tapped into a niche only this multi-faceted comic/teacher can comprehend. Through a rigorous comedic set characterized by original material and accented by physical comedy, Eddie B says what teachers everywhere are thinking but couldn’t quite say out loud, until now. He is now the official “voice of teachers” and is currently in talks to parlay the mega success of his tour into a book deal as well as television and big screen versions of his wildly popular viral videos. Millions of educators on social media are calling the “Teacher’s Only Tour” their very own stress reliever and they are filling their favorite venues to capacity eager to hear Eddie B speak THEIR mind!

Known for his warm baritone vocals, Gregory Porter rose to acclaim in the 2010s with his earthy, cross-pollinated brand of jazz, soul, and gospel. A gifted singer of standards as well as more contemporary soul material, Porter has earned favorable comparisons to his idols Nat King Cole, Donny Hathaway, and Stevie Wonder. He announced his arrival by picking up a Grammy nomination for his 2010 debut, Water. After signing to Blue Note, he gained even wider notice for his third album, 2013's Liquid Spirit, which hit number two on the jazz charts, and won the Grammy for Best Jazz Vocal Album.
Although his original songs are his main focus, Porter often returns to his roots, such as on his 2017 tribute album Nat King Cole & Me. Paying tribute to the artist who had been most influential on his own music, Nat King Cole & Me featured Porter's versions of some of Cole's most treasured classics, including "Smile" and "Mona Lisa." The concert album One Night Only: Live at the Royal Albert Hall arrived in 2018.
