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 ever-hopeful paramours dive into the dating pool:
Hosted by Jefferson (One Life Take Two, Spill!)
Shevali Goudar (The Encyclopedia Show)
Derek Hills (Speakeasy DC)
Kevin Phillips (The Encyclopedia Show)
Jessica Piscitelli (Better Said Than Done)
. . . and more! You’ve had memorable dates and those you’d rather forget. Put your name in the hat for a chance to bare all on the Bare! stage.
. . . and still more! One lucky audience member will win a sex toy courtesy of Adam & Eve.
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 along the East Coast 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.
Shivali Goudar is a comedian and singer laugh-rocking her way around the many stages of the DC area. Originally hailing from Texas, this performer has a larger-than-life personality that will leave you captivated and craving something sweet. When she’s not singing and slinging jokes, you can find her co-producing and hosting The Encyclopedia Show DC on the first Friday of every month. She prefers her martinis extra dirty, enjoys trivia and has incredibly awful depth perception. With heels as high the sky, there’s a significant chance she’ll fall off the stage.
Derek Hills is a storyteller and writer from Washington, DC. He is a regular on the SpeakeasyDC stage and was a part of its 2011 Halloween special, “Boo!” He has also performed in Vijai Nathan’s “Fan-Freaking-Tastic” variety show and with DC’s Story League. Other credits include “e-Geaux (beta)” from the 2011 Capital Fringe Festival and his work with the sketch-comedy group “Orbit Chef.”
Kevin Phillips is a comedian and storyteller by night and an IT professional by morning and most of the afternoon. Hailing from quaint Spring Hill, Kansas, Kevin builds on his Midwest upbringing and endless fascination with yelling. Kevin can be seen performing across various venues all over the DC/Baltimore area. Kevin also co-produces the Encyclopedia Show DC at the Woolly Mammoth and likes to spend his free time sleeping upright.
Jessica Piscitelli is the Founder of Better Said Than Done, Virginia’s premiere storytelling troupe, recently voted “Best Performance Act in Virginia” by Virginia Living Magazine. In addition to telling tales in Virginia, Jessica has performed stories for SpeakeasyDC, Fan-Freaking-Tastic, SWAN Day, and TEDx. Jessica has been a regular commentator on Metro Connection, on WAMU. When she’s not writing or storytelling, Jessica runs Capture Video, Inc, a corporate video production company.
