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 starry-eyed storytellers as they cross only their fingers in wishful tales:
Hosted by Jefferson (One Life Take Two, Spill!)
David Erik Finn
Samaria “Sam Jay” Johnson
. . . 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 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 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.
Flying in the face of a Facebook-assisted divorce, David Erik Finn talks about the time when the culmination of his “five stages of grief” not only brought him full-circle on the relationship, but also got his fill of first-time prostrate massage via a night stick one night . . . mentioning any more would impinge on the summary aspect of this summary.
Samaria “Sam Jay” Johnson is a Boston native, lesbian and African American who brings her many vantages to bear in a style that is uniquely her own, forging stories and comedy that are witty, relatable and raw. Sam Jay provokes audiences by pushing their thinking while still giving her sets the feel of a barroom conversation with one of your funniest friends. Her familiar personality on and off stage has allowed her to build quite the buzz in and around Boston comedy circles. Opening for power house/veteran acts like Joe Clair (BET), Clint Coley (DL Hugley protégé), and Rob Stapleton (Comedy Central) has not only helped this rising star hone her skills but has also allowed her to branch out up and down the East Coast. Performing at comedic institutions like Gotham NYC and the Comedy Studio in Cambridge MA, Sam Jay is wowing audiences and building her fan base.
Brett McCabe is not the hero we deserve, but the one we need right now. His blunt humor and sexual misadventures are perfect for any parent’s basement. In an effort to sway the judges by indulging in the sponsor’s product, Brett did not advance past the first round of the Jack Daniel’s Best Bar Comic competition. Jim Jefferies once called him “fuckface” on the Talkin’ Shit podcast, though has ignored Brett’s text messages ever since. His parents still aren’t proud of him.
