Hungry for a great story? Look no further than EAT YOUR WORDS, The Standard, Hollywood's monthly live storytelling event hosted by comedian and storyteller Greg Walloch (
"LA audiences don't seem to actually eat very much food, so they might as well come to a show where they can hear all about it!

Everybody eats and everyone has a story to tell. With Eat Your Words I wanted to create an evening that gives folks that feeling of community -- that moment where you take a break in your day and just sit around the kitchen table, sharing stories over some great food and a bottle of wine. Eat Your Words provides an opportunity for Los Angeles audiences to meet some of their favorite performers, storytellers and local chefs on a personal level.

The stories are often loosely inspired by a food theme -- food politics, the best meal you ever ate, a food memory. Each show features a rotating cast of the city's most outstanding storytellers and comedians with special guest appearances by LA area chefs, bartenders and urban foodies.

We were thrilled to recently have chefs Sergio Perera and Jacob Kear of The Amalur Project ( on the show. Not only are they creating absolutely stunning food, they are innovators in the field. We also featured spirit raconteur Simon Ford of The 86 Co. ( and Alie Ward and Georgia Hardstark of Cooking Channel's "Tripping Out with Alie & Georgia" (
Eat Your Words guest comedians and performers have included: Chris Gorham (Covert Affairs - USA Network), Kurt Braunohler (Hot Tub With Kurt & Kristen), Frank DeCaro (The Frank DeCaro Show - Sirius Radio), Drew Droege (Not Looking), Nadya Ginsberg (Madonnalogues), Caroline Pardilla (Caroline on Crack), Joselyn Hughes (DIY Damnit- Nerdist) Hasan Minhaj (Standup Planet), Ron Funches  (Undateable - NBC) and more!

Eat Your Words: We know you're starving for something good!
