5 Truths and a Lie is a storytelling show that regularly presents their show live in Los Angeles to a small audience. The show is recorded and released as a podcast. Every year 5TL brings out their inner nerd and heads to Dragon Con in Atlanta. What makes Dragon Con so exciting is the increased audience size which adds a palpable electricity to the air. In addition, since Dragon Con is a pop culture convention, 5TL gets amazing guests from different areas of fandom to tell true stories from their lives!
Well, kind of tell true stories.
You see, here’s the thing. 5 Truths and a Lie is a storytelling show that asks six guests to tell a story from their lives based on a theme. The catch is, one of the storytellers is lying. The audience’s job is guess who the liar is. What ensues is a raucous and hilarious hour of storytelling where all bets are off and it seems like everyone is lying.
Last year, 5TL assembled an amazing line-up of storytellers to share tales based on this theme: Secret Identities: Stories of Alter Egos, Cover Stories and the Other Disguises We Use. The show was published as a podcast shortly thereafter. You can listen to the show in its entirety, here, or you can listen to the 5TL Singles from the show, below.
