Each month, Bare! True Stories of Sex, Desire and Romance 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.

Featuring storytellers sharing tales you won’t hear elsewhere with Boston’s sexiest audience.

Join our storytellers as they try to be understood with tales of misunderstanding:

Hosted by Jefferson (One Life Take Two, Spill!)

Michael Anderson (First Amendment Lawyer)

Chris Connolly (Vagina Monologues)

Matt Kona (Comics Coming Up)

Jenny Zigrino (Women in Comedy Festival)

. . . and you! You’ve got a tale of misunderstanding. Put your name in the hat for a chance to bare all on the Bare! stage.

. . . and more! One lucky audience member will win our sex-toy raffle courtesy of Hubba Hubba.


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.

Matt Anderson

Michael Anderson is a First Amendment lawyer.  He thinks: there’s no such thing as free speech if you don’t use it. After he takes off his tie, he talks to audiences in ways they don’t allow in federal court. He has performed in venues from San Francisco to London.

Chris Connolly

Chris Connolly

Chris Connolly has lived through an Ecquadorian coup d’etat, been a massage therapist to the Bush family and named the octopus that frequents her favorite dive spot off the coast of Israel “Fred.” Her performance credits include being picked out of the Bare! Pussy and plucked from the audience at last month’s Bare! and many stints in Vagina Monologues where she played “Cunt Girl” and the moans in the “The Woman Who Loved to Make Vaginas Happy”. When she is not moaning on stage she is an educator and start-up minion based in Boston.

Matt Kona

Matt Kona is a regular on the Boston Comedy Scene, and a fresh voice. Not for the faint of heart, Matt’s dark sense of humor pokes fun at topics from the mundane to the taboo with equal sharpness. He blends absurdist one liners and twisted topical commentary in with bizarre personal stories. He hosts the weekly Comics Coming Up Podcast available on his website and itunes.

Jenny Zigrino

Jenny Zigrino

Jenny Zigrino performs nationally in clubs, colleges and festivals. Jenny recently featured for national acts Gilbert Gottfried and Josh Blue, and also worked with such great comics as Eddie Brill, Bonnie MacFarlane, Maria Bamford, Joe Wong and Carole Montgomery.
