The Moth is a nationally acclaimed organization dedicated to the art and craft of storytelling.
- The Peabody Award-winning Moth Radio Hour is featured on over 200 NPR stations.
- The Moth Podcasts are downloaded more than one million times a month.
- The Moth has presented thousands of stories, told live and without notes, to standing-room-only crowds worldwide.
The Moth Mainstage is a celebration of both the raconteur, who breathes fire into true tales of ordinary life, and the storytelling novice, who has lived through something extraordinary and yearns to share it. Since its launch in 1997, Moth Mainstage traditionally include three “best-of” tellers (who you might recognize from The Moth Podcast or The Moth Radio Hour), and two brand-new regionally specific stories. The recording of the local stories, in many cases, is then included on The Moth Podcast and/or The Moth Radio Hour.
The Host for The Moth Mainstage at The Academy will be Ophira Eisenberg.
Ophira Eisenberg is a comedian, writer, and host of NPR’s weekly comedy trivia show, Ask Me Another. Selected as one of New York Magazine’s “Top 10 Comics that Funny People Find Funny,” and featured in the New York Times as a skilled comedian and storyteller with a “bleakly stylish” sense of humor, Ophira has also appeared on The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson, Comedy Central, The Today Show and more. Her debut memoir, Screw Everyone: Sleeping My Way to Monogamy was recently optioned for a feature film with Zucker Productions. She is a regular host and teller with The Moth.
