Yum's the Word is the only storytelling show that blends old-school fun with modern-day storytelling. Join host, Robin Gelfenbien, and some of NYC's best storytellers, comedians and writers every month for funny true stories, Mad Libs, games and Robin's world-famous homemade ice cream cakes.*

The Scoop

Each month we select 3 audience members to be the next month’s birthday guests by playing Pin the Hose on the Fireman. Not only do they get the royal treatment and get to read the Mad Libs story the audience has created, but they get to choose the flavors in Robin’s ice cream cakes.

These custom, decadent, homemade ice cream cakes are served to the entire audience at the end of the night… heeding the show’s tagline –
Hear true stories. Get a piece.

*Lactaid pills available at every show. Seriously.
