Here's a joke for you:


Laughter is the best medicine!

Unless you're treating diarrhea.

Story Telling in Colorado!

We started on the last week of July, heading for Delta, Colorado.

I had been asked to tell stories for the Deltarado Days celebration.

That was great!
I especially loved telling stories in Delta, because the famous Delta Band Robbery attempt by the McCarty family happened there in the 1890's.

The next week, Julie and I flew to Denver, and went to Castle Rock, where I told stories at the Douglas County Fair!

Pictures of our related adventures coming up!

Great time telling stories in Henderson Nevada!

What a weekend it was!
I took my wife with me, and we stayed a couple of nights in Vegas for a get-away. It was wonderful.
Then on Saturday, I presented stories for Henderson Heritage Days.
They put on a great festival!
The audience was great, and the setting was perfect!

I'm working with GigSalad!

Hey everybody!

I thought it would be important to let you know that I'm working with GigSalad now. It's been Great!
I've received three job leads in just the few short weeks I've been with them.

I HIGHLY recommend their service to any kind of performer.

I hope this will add to my storytelling reach this year.
I hope to be telling stories to YOU very soon.

Or maybe I could teach you to tell a joke or two.

We'll see!

Stories about Western Outlaws!

Butch Cassidy
Matt Warner
Elzy Lay
Harry Longabough

Bad men who made their mark on western pioneer culture.
Heroes or villains?

One way or another, the left great stories.
Outlaw stories are some of my favorites! And audiences seem to agree.

Here I am in front of the bank that Matt Warner and Butch Cassidy robbed in Telluride, Colorado.
It was their first bank robbery.

This is the home that Butch Cassidy's father built in Circleville, Utah, after Butch had left home to follow the outlaw trail.

Here I am by the cabin near Circleville, Utah, where Butch Cassidy lived as a boy until he left home.

And here I am telling stories about the Outlaw past.

A year for Story Telling!


If you're looking for a story teller, I'd like to share a few thoughts with you

I'm Darrell Mangum
I'm a member of the Utah Storytellers Guild.
I tell GREAT stories!

I specialize in stories about the wild west, 
stories about western outlaws,
stories about early settlers and pioneers.

I tell fun stories about family life and relations,
and I tell humorous stories, (really funny stories)
And I give talks about joke telling and how an improved sense of humor can improve your communication in work and social settings. (really fun!)

And finally,

I tell ghost stories. Really great ghost stories. (that'll kill ya!)

Here's a few new jokes for you:

What do you get when you cross a horse with a donkey?
A mule.
What do you get when you cross a highway with a pogo stick?
Run over.

My mom has become addicted to watching "Dancing with the Stars".
We're forcing her to enroll in a two step program.

A man worked hard all day digging the garden and felt very stiff and sore.
His wife watched with admiration, pleased with the amount of work he had done and anxious to get him to do some more.
"Have a nice soak in the bath and I'll bring you some lemonade," she suggested smiling.
"Good idea," says the husband looking forward to being waited on.
He sits in the bath for a while with his nice drink. After a while she brings him his bathrobe and tells him she’s got the bed all made up for him so he can take a nap.
"If there's anything else you'd like just call," says the wife as she leaves the bathroom.
When she got halfway along the landing the husband relaxes completely and lets off an enormous long and loud wind.
Moments later, the wife comes in with a fluffy bed warmer and a rubber container.
"What the heck is that for?" asks the husband snappily.
"Oh Darling," says the wife, flustered, "I thought I heard you say, "Whataboutahottawaterbottle."

I went to see my dentist because I had a concern.
I said to him, "I have yellow teeth! What do you recommend?"
He said, "How about a brown tie?"

A guy on a tractor just rode past shouting, "It's the end of the world!"
I think it was Farmer Geddon.

A divorce lawyer asked a woman who had come to visit him, "Tell me madam, why do you want to get a divorce?"
The woman replied, "My husband treats me like a dog."
The lawyer asked, "Does he mistreat you? Does he hit you?"
The woman replied, "No, he wants me to be faithful to him."

I went into the local pet shop and told the sales girl I wanted to buy some gold fish.
She asked me, "Would you like an aquarium?"
I told her, "I don't care what their sign is."
