THAT REMINDS ME is a monthly live storytelling show in Los Angeles featuring true stories about being human, and other terrible things.
You can catch us all summer long at Hotel Figueroa in DTLA.
This show is lovingly produced, hosted, and curated by Alisha Brophy and Rich Monahan.
Alisha Brophy is a small town girl who always ends up in big cities. She lives in Los Angeles, but you wouldn’t know it from her cowboy boots and New York accent. She is a Moth GrandSLAM champion, and you can hear her storytelling broadcast nationally on “The Moth” radio hour. Her projects are often inspired by her backstory that includes carnival work, and competitive dog training. She received her MFA in Screenwriting from UT-Austin, where she met her co-writer, Scott Miles. Alisha and Scott won the Academy's 2014 Nicholl Fellowship with their comedy United States of Fuckin' Awesome. They followed this with the feature White Girl Problems, for Elizabeth Banks and Lionsgate. They've also developed animation with ShadowMachine, sold an original pitch to CBS Films, and their DIY animated shorts have been featured on Funny or Die, IndieWire, AV Club, Huffington Post, and GQ. They've recently wrote the new License to Drive for Fox, and wrote for LEGO. They currently write for Inside Job, an upcoming adult animated comedy at Netflix.
Rich Monahan is a writer, storyteller, and producer living in Los Angeles. His writing has been featured in The New York Times, Vice, McSweeney's, Esquire Singapore, Los Angeleno, and Grantland (RIP).
A Moth GrandSLAM winner, his storytelling performances have appeared on the podcasts Risk, Mortified, and Tales of Male Folly.
Projects he produced have appeared online, on television, at SXSW, and the Sundance Film Festival.
