On Something Podcast to Host Virtual Comedy Storytelling Event

Denver, Colo. Oct. 2, 2020 - On Something, a podcast from Colorado Public Radio focusing on life after the legalization of cannabis, will host a live, virtual storytelling event on October 15. Audio from the event, “My Family, On Something,” will be used to create a bonus episode for On Something.

At the event, storytellers will tell personal tales related to their families and cannabis — stories that are promised to be full of “sentiment and substance.” Ann Marie Awad and Andrew Orvedahl will chat with the storytellers and introduce each story in real-time before a live-streaming audience.

Andrew Orvedahl is the founder of Denver’s live storytelling event and podcast, The Narrators. He is also a comedian, writer and actor behind TruTV’s scripted comedy show, “Those Who Can’t.”

Storytellers include:

  • Janae Burris, a comedian, actor, event host and former co-host of the Denver Post’s Cannabist Show in Denver.
  • Troy Walker, an L.A. based comedian, native of Denver, and two-time winner of Comedy Works’ new faces of comedy.
  • Christie Buchele, a comedian, co-host of the Empty Girlfriend Podcast and cofounder of The Pussy Bros. comedy troupe.
  • Billy Wayne Davis, a stand-up, writer, and actor based in Los Angeles. He is the creator and cohost of the podcast Grown Local.
