The Liar Show: Holiday Edition @ The Mount, The Drawing Room
Dec 13 @ 7:30 pm – 9:30 pm

The Liar Show

Seek truth. Get a T-shirt.

In a nutshell:

The Stories

Every Liar Show performance is unique. A constantly changing cast of writers and comics tell four short, extremely personal stories that will make you laugh, possibly make you think, and almost certainly make you glad you don’t live with them. But listen closely, because only three of these people are telling the truth. The fourth is making it all up.

The Interrogation

After the stories have been told, all four performers return to the stage and defend their stories while the audience rakes them over the coals with a fact-finding question and answer session, refereed by the host.

The Verdict

Each audience member casts a ballot and when the Liar is revealed, the perceptive geniuses who have guessed correctly walk away with a prize T-shirt amid a bitter chorus of “Congratulations, Einstein,” from the empty-handed losers.
