It’s a brand new show presented by The Tyler Loop and Truth in Comedy. From the producers of Out of the Loop: True Stories from Tyler and East Texas, come true, personal stories mixed in with comedians’ riffs.
The truth can be heavy. Three storytellers get real. Experience everyday Tylerites bringing serious, fearless stories in their own words, revealing something about life in our region. When things get heavy, three stand-up comics enter the mix.
Don’t miss it! Saturday, June 25 at Liberty Hall in downtown Tyler at 7:30 p.m. Tickets at the door or online here.
