I think it started about 10 years ago with:
The Moth (story slam)
-- true stores told live (and so popular it's now on NPR)
After the NYT wrote about them several years ago,
and the line to get in went over an hour I stopped going.
Some other venues are:
How I Learned
-- lessons learned, unlearned, relearned or in progress
The Liar Show
-- can you tell which storyteller is the liar?
-- stories about being in therapy
The Story Collider
-- stories about science
And undoubtedly there are others I don't even know about.
