      At least in NYC, story telling is an alive art form and very popular.
      I think it started about 10 years ago with:

      The Moth (story slam)
      http://themoth.org/
      -- true stores told live (and so popular it's now on NPR)

      After the NYT wrote about them several years ago,
      <http://www.nytimes.com/2008/11/16/nyregion/thecity/16moth.html>
      and the line to get in went over an hour I stopped going.

      Some other venues are:

      How I Learned
      http://www.howilearnedseries.com/
      -- lessons learned, unlearned, relearned or in progress

      The Liar Show
      http://www.theliarshow.com/
      -- can you tell which storyteller is the liar?

      Talk Therapy
      http://www.talkingcurestories.com/
      -- stories about being in therapy

      The Story Collider
      http://storycollider.org/
      -- stories about science

      And undoubtedly there are others I don't even know about.
