False. Positive?

Look, it's hard coming up with lie-related headlines week after week. Some are bound to be less elegant than others. Luckily, that's not true of these four performers; they're all artists with words. But which one's the con artist? I'm pleased to introduce Liar's next four storytellers.

Come help us keep this thing honest.


Who You Lookin' At?

Looks tough doesn't she? That might be why so few audience members risked calling Michele a liar. She is a liar, of course. I mean, look at her.

Ophira, Christen and Darlene all stuck to the facts with true stories about 1: Valentines Day in a porn palace. (No topping on my popcorn, thank you.) 2: Daddy in the delivery room, and 3: Learning to love Elvis. "The King is fat, long live the King." I hope we see you at out next show. You won't believe it.
