Meet “Close To Home” Storyteller Coleman Easley

At 17, Coleman Easley triggered the alarm in his house one night and opted for the best response possible: grabbing a bat and helping his parents and police find the “intruder.” On Tuesday, December 19, Coleman takes us back to the days of sneaking out to party. 

A Dallas native, Coleman Easley is new to the local storytelling scene. His experiences have been shaped by time spent in North Texas, the Mississippi delta, Austin, and New York. Some of those experiences were sought after, others were unavoidable. He is grateful to share one such experience with the Oral Fixation audience.

Have You Ever Been Under the Gun?

“Under the Gun” is our March show!  We still have some storyteller slots to fill, and we know you’re out there, dying to tell us your stories.

Deadlines. The pressure to finish, to find something, to begin, to end, to fight or to stay alive. We have all experienced some kind of strenuous situation in which we feel under the gun…or maybe you actually were at the other end of a gun.

Either way, we want to hear about it.

We are specifically looking for some juicy stories from police officers, security folks, detectives, anyone who carries a gun regularly. Or perhaps you were in some kind of shootout.

The deadline to submit for “Under the Gun” is  March 1st at 5:00 PM.  To submit, just visit our Submissions page!

For a little hilarity and inspiration, check out this scene from Bean: The Ultimate Disaster Movie.
