Daniel Frazier Headlines Pictures of Fireworks, Tonight at Fido

Posted By on Wed, Feb 20, 2013 at 12:26 PM

Pictures of Fireworks is tonight and, by now, I'm sure y'all know the drill. Hosted by local author/comedian Jane Borden, Pictures of Fireworks is a free, monthly storytelling show dedicated to locals telling true stories to a room full of strangers in the back of Fido.

This month's installment feature four storytellers, including journalist Bobby Allyn, comedian Will Copeland, Scene contributor/professional curmudgeon Sean Maloney and headliner Daniel Frazier, who is possibly the folksiest human being ever to walk the planet. The proof of that is in his recently released record, Daniel Frazier Speaks vol. 1, in which Frazier sounds like a Spring Hill campfire personified.

As always, in addition to the professionals, audience members have an opportunity to tell their own stories by putting their name in the hat. If you're chosen, you have four minutes to tell your best story and win a prize. (The prize is polite applause.) At the last show, an audience member stole the whole thing with a hilarious story about being arrested for a DUI, despite being the stone-sober designated driver.

Doors open around 7:30 p.m., with the show kicking off at 8 p.m. The show is totally free, but I'm sure the baristas wouldn't mind if you bought a beer or something (and tipped well).
