New York’s sexiest storytelling show is now monthly in Philadelphia!

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.

James Bradford

Comedian and singer James Bradford is best known for portraying himself . . . sort of . . . on the VH1/LOGO television series “Can’t Get a Date.” He has toured the globe with his ragtag band “The Mana-Mana’s,” and his sold out Fringe show “Thick!” drew in crowds from as far away as the bar downstairs from the stage. He’s been a musical theater queen, a DJ and for two years a professional cocksucker. Combining wry observations on pop culture with his unique brand of queer-eye-hilarity, his stories will leave you shaking your head. Whether it’s in laughter or confusion is really irrelevant.

Fernandez

Vickie Fernandez is an award-winning writer, storyteller and comedian. Her stories have appeared in a number of publications you’ve probably never heard of, but should check out. When she’s not working on her memoir and wrangling new unruly tales into submission you can find her performing her stories and telling jokes all over Philadelphia. She hopes to someday move to Mexico and live in a brightly colored house with plenty of room for her pet monkeys, Frida Kahlo shrines and disproportionate collection of cowboy boots.

Nisse

Nisse Greenberg

Nisse Greenberg talks to his friends over the phone when he can, but relies on email too much. He’s trying to stop that. It makes him feel like they’re disconnected, y’know? He hosts this show called Bad Feelings that’s really interesting and Jefferson is going to be on the next one which is March 27th, so you should come! It’s part of a weekly storytelling series that he is the curatorial manager for at The Tank Theater. Talk to him after the show if you wanna get involved. He also used to produce this show called Drawn Out Storytelling that he’ll probably do some more work with in the future. He likes beginnings, gets confused by endings and has a hard time getting through the middle.

Jon Klein

Jon Klein has performed at open mics and storytelling venues throughout the Boston area. He won a MassMouth StorySlam and is competing in this month’s semi-finals. Jon founded and was executive director of three nonprofit organizations over a twenty-year period:  an AIDS prevention organization targeting sex workers and IV-drug users, another providing support to and advocacy for LGBT youth, and a thrift store benefiting the LGBT community. Jon’s unusual life – frequent long-distance hitchhiking, living on $300 a month, not paying rent or a mortgage since 1980, refusing to pay federal income taxes since 1981 as a conscientious objector to war, having bipolar disorder—provides fodder for his material, as does his hypersexuality (psychiatric term for “slut”).
