Jim Bennett, Moth Grand Slam XI Champion

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. He’s also advancing the gay agenda as the Midwest Regional Director of Lambda Legal. He helped bring marriage equality to Iowa and is now working on Illinois. Jim has ADD.
