The Gory Details Audio Archive

This Halloween weekend as part of our event at The Steve Allen Theater, we’ve invited some of your favorite comedians, artists, and underground personalities to share macabre stories of their own grisly medical incidents. This is actually a continuation The Gory Details Project, our attempt to create an audio archive of true first-person stories of medical emergencies.We began collecting these stories in 2006 using a dedicated phone line and also occasionally parking our ambulance on public streets and using costumed nurses to corral passersby into our mobile recording studio. More recently, some of those stories became the basis for a series of videos.  (More on that later.)

The 100+ recordings can be streamed here. If you don’t like clicking on streaming links every 2 minutes, a selection of some of our favorites can be downloaded from iTunes.
