“We all have baggage; some of us talk about it on stage” is the motto of Talk Therapy Stories + Open Mic, a monthly storytelling show hosted by Lori Baird at QED: A Place to Show & Tell in Astoria. The show features comics, actors, storytellers, and regular folks telling true stories — sometimes funny, occasionally sad, and always compelling — related to mental health.
