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

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 mild-to-wild storytellers on wild card night; no theme, no holds barred.

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

Chris Connolly (Bare! Feature)

Anais Dreame (Stark Naked Blog)

Wes Hazard (Comedian)

Kevin Quigley (Bleed Out)

Emily Ruskowski (Comedian)

. . . 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.

Wes Hazard

Wes Hazard considers himself extremely lucky to be able to get on stage and entertain people. A 2011 resident at the celebrated Comedy Studio in Cambridge, he was selected to perform in the 2012 Boston Comedy Festival and the 2013 Women in Comedy Festival (yes). In addition, in March of 2013 he was named one of the “Five Boston Comedians to Watch” by the Boston Globe. Whether he’s deconstructing the politics of 80s cartoons, analyzing race in post-Obama America, or obsessing about the everyday things that make life a little surreal for us all, Wes Hazard is able to delight audiences with his singular wit, insight and energy. He wishes you nothing but the best.
