Jim Bennett, Moth Grand Slam XI Champion
The Moth is an acclaimed not-for-profit organization dedicated to the art and craft of storytelling. It is a celebration of both the raconteur, who breathes fire into true tales of ordinary life, and the storytelling novice, who has lived through something extraordinary and yearns to share it. At the center of each performance is, of course, the story – and The Moth’s directors work with each storyteller to find, shape and present it.
Since its launch in 1997, The Moth has presented thousands of stories, told live and without notes, to standing-room-only crowds worldwide.
Now meet Jim Bennett, The Moth’s 2012 Grand Slam XI Champion! Jim Bennett, a Chicagoan and graduate of Second City’s conservatory program, writes and performs comedy.
