But That's Another Story is an online, monthly storytelling event to bring people together during these challenging times.

Canadian Comedy Award recipient Briane Nasimok and Canadian Comedy Award nominee Christel Bartelse have joined forces to showcase a wide array of Toronto's finest raconteurs!

Each evening will include a variety of styles (fables, indigenous tales, contemporary works, autobiographical observations, comic essays) from some of Toronto's most compelling tellers.  "But That's Another Story" is presented on the first Sunday of every month.
