At a festival overflowing with world-class talent, you shouldn’t throw around the title "master storyteller" lightly. Especially with a young performer such as Sam Mullins, whose career "saying words in front of people" is only going to climb higher.
But God, he’s good. Taking personal truths that hold him back, Mullins assembles four intimate stories that make the hour fly by. His lines show articulate workmanship while never coming across as unnatural, thanks to an easy, self-deprecating rapport with the audience.
It’s sterling work in a smallish venue. Get your ticket early.
