New York’s sexiest storytelling show is now monthly in Boston. Join us first Mondays at The Middle East.

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.

Join our free-styling storytellers as they go to great libertine liberties:

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

Chris Connolly (Bare!)

Matt Kona (Comics Coming Up)

Andy Ofiesh (Naked Comedy Showcase)

Kevin Quigley (Sketchhaus)

. . . and 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 a sexy raffle prize courtesy of Hubba Huba.

Jefferson

Jefferson

Jefferson is the curator and host of Bare!, monthly in Boston, New York and Washington, D.C. 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 New York and elsewhere, including The Moth, where he is a StorySlam winner. He is also host of Spill! True Stories of Queer Sex, Desire and Romance, monthly in New York and Washington, D.C., and Foreplay: A Sexy Storytelling Open Mic, biweekly in New York.

Chris Connolly

Chris Connolly

Chris Connolly has lived through an Ecuadoran 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.” Chris has been talking about sex as an educator for over a decade working in clinics to universities and everything in between. She recently transitioned from not only teaching about sex, but also laughing about it in her stand up and stories.

Matt Kona

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.

Andy Ofiesh

Andy Ofiesh

Andy Ofiesh is the creator and host of The Naked Comedy Showcase at Improv Boston. A surprise hit at Edinburgh Fringe, this monthly show features comedians performing stand-up in the nude. Join Andy on the first Wednesday of each month as he goes below the belt to expose the rawest in Boston comedy.

Kevin Quigley

Kevin Quigley

Kevin Quigley has worked as the producer of Sketchhaus, the premier sketch comedy night at ImprovBoston, since early 2012. He also directs, acts, and writes for two sketch comedy teams, Duct Tape Revolution and World of Hurt, both of which have had successful runs at both Sketchhaus and at the Comedy Lab at IB. In addition, Kevin co-produced The Scoop, a limited-run storytelling night, during which he frequently appeared as a performer.
