THE LIAR SHOW – July 28
July 28 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pmFree
SEEK TRUTH. GET A T-SHIRT.
Call it an unreality show. Since the summer of 2006, The Liar Show has taken the art of deception to theaters, cabarets and cultural centers around the U.S. and Canada and was called “A Winner” (The Scotsman) and received 4 Stars during a month-long run at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival.
Liar has featured New Yorker Magazine contributor Andy Borowitz, Mike Daisey, called “The master storyteller” by the NY Times, and former Bill Clinton speechwriter, Mark Katz in addition to Comedy Central personalities, film directors, lapsed Mormons with a bone to pick with the Almighty, and even an NYPD gang squad detective.
At each show, four performers tell short personal stories, but listen carefully, because one of these people is making it all up. Interrogate the cast and expose the Liar to win our unbelievable T-shirt. But as The Washington Post wrote of our show: “Prizes mean nothing compared with the sweet victory of being recognized as the savviest people in the room.”
The Liar Show will fill the The Lawn on Stangl with three great stories, and one big fat lie on Wednesday evening, July 28th outdoors under a tent. The show will be hosted by Joey Novick, publisher of TAPinto Flemington, and storyteller who’s appeared at the Jersey Fringe Festival.

Every Liar Show performance is unique. A constantly changing cast of writers and comics tell four short, extremely personal stories that will make you laugh, possibly make you think, and almost certainly make you glad you don’t live with them. But listen closely, because only three of these people are telling the truth. The fourth is making it all up.THE INTERROGATION
After the stories have been told, all four performers return to the stage and defend their stories while the audience rakes them over the coals with a fact-finding question and answer session, refereed by the host.THE VERDICT
Each audience member casts a ballot and when the Liar is revealed, the perceptive geniuses who have guessed correctly walk away with a prize T-shirt amid a bitter chorus of “Congratulations, Einstein,” from the empty-handed losers.
