Stories of goosebumps, ghostly encounters and the things that still haunt you.

Confabulation, Montreal's original true-life storytelling series, is thrilled to return to the Montreal Intercultural Storytelling Festival with another night of stories, true as we can tell them. Join us for six stories, shared by the people that lived them. This month, our theme is Boo! Stories of goosebumps, ghostly encounters and the things that still haunt you. Expect the unexpected in this night of stories exploring the inexplicable.

PHI Event Centre Confabulation Accomplices Matt Goldberg

Matt Goldberg

Matt Goldberg is the founder and artistic director of Confabulation. Through Confabulation, he has taught storytelling and coached stories and pitches for students, professionals, artists and amateurs for a range of ages and backgrounds, and for all kinds of purposes.

Matt is a Montreal-based comedian, writer, actor and storyteller. He is also a founder member of Uncalled For — an award-winning Canadian sketch and improv comedy troupe, based in Montreal and Toronto. He hosts the Confabulation podcast, and has performed at Fringe Festivals and storytelling shows across Canada, as well as at special events with the PHI Centre, CBC Books and Just for Laughs. Matt teaches English literature and storytelling at Vanier College, in Montreal.

Since 2010, Confabulation has produced monthly true-life storytelling shows, featuring a range of both amateur and professional storytellers. We regularly feature artists, authors, comedians, and actors, while also supporting and promoting non-traditional and first-time performers. We seek to highlight a range of voices from our broader community, providing a space for people to share their stories in a supportive and welcoming community. Our podcast follows up on this mission — featuring some of our favourite stories from the live show, as well as conversations with the storytellers and producers.
