Each month, 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.
This month, our memorable storytellers commemorate Memorial Day with tales of incidents best forgotten.
Hosted by Jefferson (One Life Take Two, Spill!)
John Flynn (Nights of Our Lives, Upright Citizens Brigade)
Lynsey G. (WHACK! Magazine, New York City Poetry Brothel)
Nate Rand (Invitation to a Beheading)
H. Alan Scott (SRSLY LOL, The Tweet Spot)
Musical guest Sterling Infinity
. . . and you! You have a story you’d rather put behind you. Put your name in the hat for a chance to bare all on the Bare! stage.
And more! One lucky audience member will win Bare’s sex-toy raffle, courtesy of Babeland.
Jefferson is the curator and host of Bare! A sex educator and writer, Jefferson keeps a pseudonymous blog, One Life, Take Two, that details his life as a parent and pervert. He is a storyteller frequently seen on stages around the city and elsewhere, including The Moth, where he is a StorySlam winner. He is also host of the monthly series Spill! True Stories of Queer Sex, Desire and Romance.
John Flynn has been performing, writing, and directing at the Upright Citizen’s Brigade since 2004. He’s a producer and regular performer of “Nights of Our Lives,” a monthly storytelling show that has been running for seven years. He hosts an open mic storytelling show, “Oh Hey Guys,” every Thursday at the UCB Theater in the East Village.
Lynsey G (aka Miss Lagsalot, in some circles), a copywriter, reviewer, interviewer, columnist and blogger writing for and about porn since 2007, has one foot in and one foot out of the adult entertainment industry. Formerly a smut scribe for Fox, Juggs, and Tight magazines, MadisonBound.com and McSweeney’s Internet Tendency, she is now the editor-in-chief at WHACK! Magazine, an online trade publication for the adult industry, and a blogger at her own website. She is a Poetry Whore with the New York City Poetry Brothel, always working on at least one art project and manuscript, and may also be penning a graphic novel about porn and world domination . . . maybe.
Sterling Infinity’s songwriting abilities and extraordinary vocal range have won the attention and adulation of audiences at church venues, Madison Square Garden, Radio City Music Hall, Avery Fisher Hall and the Jacob Javits Center. His new EP is Mental Hybrid.
Nate Rand is a Brooklyn-based comedian and writer. This is a nice way to say he is a broke, single alcoholic with no future. There are very few subjects he won’t touch; among them: airline peanuts, the differences between women and men and superheroes. This isn’t due to being frightened of said subjects; it is due to a burning desire to drive a railroad spike through the skull of the next comic who talks about them. Rand has been a frequent guest on Cringe Humor’s “Cluster Fuck Radio” and performs regularly in clubs, bars, broom closets and drunk tanks throughout the city. He has also co-hosted and produced “Invitation to a Beheading,” a twice monthly standup show in Manhattan’s East Village. Rand enjoys fine bourbons purchased by other people and movies with sad endings.
H. Alan Scott, a comedian, writer, and actor, is the Mormon with an intense interest in Fresca! Hailing from a lovingly dysfunctional family from the right side of the tracks in St. Louis, Missouri, he has become what the Chicago Tribune’s Red Eye calls the “hot gay Mormon.” Scott has performed at the Hollywood Improv, the Laugh Factory, Comix, Caroline’s on Broadway and Chicago’s Lakeshore Theater. You may have also heard him on Sirius/XM Radio or as one of here!TV’s “Hot Gay Comics.” Scott, along with Bryan Wilson, is the co-host and producer of “SRSLY LOL,” an alternative variety show in New York City and Los Angeles. Scott also is the creator and producer of “The Tweet Spot: The Twitter Game Show,” a live game show based on the regular activities of a Twitter user.
