  This Much is True

Carol Kaufman Kerman is one of six dynamic storytellers that will fill the stage at This Much is True.
This Much Is True is one of the longest running storytelling shows in Chicago, IL. Every month, we come together in the cozy upstairs lounge of one of the city's finest pubs for an evening of true personal stories from some of Chicago's most fascinating people. An all new cast takes the stage each month to let you in on the heartbreaking, the hilarious, and everything in between.

TMIT is intimate. You'll feel like you have joined friends to share life experiences over a few pints.

Stories begin at 7:30pm
Admission  Free and open to the public
