Bare brings together storytellers, comedians, sex educators and others to share true tales from their own experiences of sex, desire and romance. With stories as diverse as the people telling them, Bare opens doors to bedrooms, back seats and dungeons to tell what your mama left out about the birds, bees and in-betweens.
The first installment of Bare focuses on—what else?—first times. Come to Union Hall to pop cherries with these scintillating performers:
Hosted by Jefferson (Writer, Storyteller, One Life Take Two)
Killy “Mockstar” Dwyer (Comedian, Musician, Alter Ego)
Ophira Eisenberg (Comedian, Author, The Moth)
Dave Hill (Comedian, Upright Citizen’s Brigade, This American Life)
Lolita Wolf (Sex Educator, Author, Princess)

. . . and you! You have a story about a sexy first time. Put your name in the hat for a chance to bare all on the Bare stage.
