New York City, NY (PRWEB) April 26, 2012

Comedian Andrew Goffman, star of the off-Broadway show "The Accidental Pervert," is holding a contest that pays $500 for the funniest personal story in honor of Tell A Story Day on April 27.

"No one starts out to be a pervert. It's life that does it to you." So begins comedian Andrew Goffman's New York show "The Accidental Pervert." For 90 minutes, the comic performer keeps audiences laughing at stories from his misguided adolescence, starting when he stumbled upon his Dad's collection of XXX-rated videotapes when he was 11 years old.

Now Andrew is inviting a special someone to bare his or her own soul. In honor of Tell A Story Day on April 27, he is looking for a revealing personal story. Whoever submits the funniest video of themselves telling the story will win $500 and two free tickets to "The Accidental Pervert," which runs every Friday and Saturday night at 7:00pm at the 13th Street Repertory Company at 50 W 13th Street in New York City (between 5th and 6th Avenues). The story could be about a comic misunderstanding, a funny anecdote, or just a really big hilarious secret.

"Every Friday and Saturday night, I get up in front of a live crowd and make people laugh by telling a lot of secrets that I hid for years," says Goffman. "If I can do it, then anyone can."

To submit your entry to win the $500, just send your a video (or a link to it) to Goffman at info(at)theaccidentalpervert(dot)com. He and the play's director Charles Messina will select the winner based on how funny and entertaining the story is. The winner will be notified by email by July 1. The winning video will also be posted at The Accidental Pervert's Facebook fan page, which can be found at http://www.facebook.com/theaccidentalpervert.

"People need to be more honest and stop holding it all in," says Goffman. "I want to give someone the chance to get it out of their system and laugh about it."
