Jo Caulfield presents a special Comedy Cafe programme about modern storytelling events where comedians, writers, performers, magicians and musicians come together to tell true stories.

Comedy writer and stand-up comedian Keir McAllister joins Jo live to talk about leaving the comfort zone of the comedy club where tall tales are told and wildly exaggerated and tells a very personal story of turning his back on religion to a new audience.

Grant Stott talks about the relationship between radio presenting and telling stories; and we hear from musicians, storytellers and comedians.

Anti-folk New York musician Lach shares his own storytelling experiences and performs his own kind of folk music storytelling live on the show.
