Storyteller/Comedian Tom Shillue Wants to Hear Your Stories

Tom shillue Stand-up comedian and storyteller Tom Shillue is currently performing his one-man show, Supernormal, at PS 122 in NYC. (Read our recent interview with Shillue on Blog Stage, and read the Back Stage review of Supernormal at BackStage.com.)

He is also a contributor to the new Broadcastr.com, a site that lets people create and share their own location-based audio stories. And for Thursday night's performance of Supernormal, he's letting you talk back with the free Broadcastr iPhone app, which streams audio based on GPS coordinates. Shillue is inviting fans to share their stories on the app before the show tomorrow night. Afterwards, he'll announce the location of a secret after-party on Broadcastr, inviting anyone who shared a story to come by and share a drink. Listen to Shillue's 30-second invitation here.

Currently in beta, Broadcastr offers stories based on location. Users can share oral histories, restaurant reviews, walking tours, citizen journalism, personal messages, funny anecdotes, and more from around the world. At the 9/11 Memorial, for example, you'll hear stories from first responders. In the Philippines, listen to a 6th grader recount his experience during recent flooding. At the Starbucks on Astor Place in NYC, you can listen to Shillue's story, "A city so big, even God can't see us"; in fact, some of Shillue's stories are among the most popular on the site (which also includes audio from other NYC comedians such as Michael Showalter). Check out Broadcastr.com to listen to more.

Supernormal, originally scheduled to run until April 2, has been extended to April 9 at PS 122.
