Story Club – a monthly literary event that operates like a poetry slam – returns Thursday with the theme “Work!”

“Since our next show falls on May 1, also known internationally as May Day, it seems only fitting,” said Ken Green, who founded Story Club in November after moving from Chicago, where he participated in another branch of the event.

He wants the three audience members who will be called onstage after signing up to “Tell us about your worse job, your best job, that thing that happened at work, that time you started a worker’s revolt,” and in the traditional Story Club format there are also three featured performers: storyteller, poet and comedian Wes Hazard; Chicago live-lit star J.H. Palmer; and local storyteller Rachel Greenberg.

The open-mic sign-up is at 6 p.m., and the show starts a half-hour later.

It takes place at ImprovBoston, 40 Prospect St., Central Square. Tickets are $12.
