Fibber Preview by Hillary Rea

Fibber is a monthly storytelling show produced by Philly Improv Theater and hosted by Hillary Rea. Each month four storytellers swear to tell the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth. But one of the four is the Fibber, weaving a web of lies with a totally made up story. It’s the audience’s job to listen to the stories, interrogate the performers, and vote for the person whose pants they think are on fire. After a secret audience ballot, the Fibber is revealed and those who chose wisely are rewarded with a smug sense of satisfaction and free tickets to a future show.

Get to know the storytellers for the upcoming show, Monday May 7th at 9pm at the Shubin. Host Hillary Rea interviewed each one and asked the question: Give me three reasons why the audience should believe your story.

T.J. Hurley

T.J.is a full time hack and part time comic. He lives and works in Philadelphia.

Why you should believe me:
1) I was raised Catholic and am haunted by an almost transcendent sense of guilt.
2) Look at this face. This is an honest face.
3) Why would I lie? I don’t need to impress you people.

Andrew Panebianco

Andrew writes, eats salads, and cries easily at movies.  He teaches college English in order to justify the amount of corduroy jackets he owns.

Why you should believe me:
1. I try exceptionally hard to be an honest person.
2. I check my bed every night to make sure there aren’t any spiders under my covers.
3. One of these three sentences is a lie.

Sue Taney

Sue is an amazing preschool teacher by day, and improv comedian by night. She makes the hour long journey from Jersey several times a week to Philly to practice and perform in Comedysportz, Hate Speech Committee, and Rookie Card because she super loves it.

Why you should believe me:
1. Look at this face
2. (Points to face)
3. Would I lie to you?

Andrew Whitmire

During the day, Andrew is the Program Director at Destination Imagination, Inc., where he, on a daily basis, can be found developing and implementing fun and educational programming based on teamwork and creativity for kids in more than 30 countries worldwide. At night, he loves to sleep.

Why you should believe me:
1. I work at a non-profit so I’m not in it for the money.
2. As a 5-year-old I accidentally stole Werther’s Originals from the grocery, got away with it (accidentally) and still returned them. Well, my mom did.
3. I am an Eagle Scout.

Check out these stories from past Fibber shows. One of these storytellers is telling the truth and one is the Fibber. Guess who.
