Bare! True Stories of Sex, Desire and Romance
Wednesday, September 4, 8-10pm, $8

Each month, Bare! 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 always experimenting storytellers as they relate tales of trial and error:

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

Shivali Goudar (The Encyclopedia Show)

Reggie Melbrough (Don't Block The Box)

Kevin T. Phillips (The Encyclopedia Show)

. . . and more! You have stories of trials, errors and experiments gone awry. Put your name in the hat for a chance to bare all on the Bare! stage.

. . . and still more! One lucky audience member will win a sex toy, courtesy of Adam & Eve.

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.

Shivali Goudar is a comedian and singer laugh-rocking her way around the many stages of the DC area. Originally hailing from Texas, this performer has a larger-than-life personality that will leave you captivated and craving something sweet. When she's not singing and slinging jokes, you can find her co-producing and hosting The Encyclopedia Show DC on the first Friday of every month. She prefers her martinis extra dirty, enjoys trivia and has incredibly awful depth perception. With heels as high the sky, there's a significant chance she'll fall off the stage.

Reggie Melbrough is a DC comic who has been on the rise since he first took the stage in 2009. The Boise, Idaho native's unique perception of life is cutting, silly and darn right funny. Reggie is a frequent host at the Arlington Cinema Drafthouse. As one of the co-producers of The Don't Block the Box Comedy Show and The Looking Glass Comedy Show, he has worked with top comedic talents such as Andy Kindler, Orlando Jones, The Sklar Brothers, Tony Woods, Tommy Johnigan and many more. Reggie was recently featured in the Washington Post as a "comic to watch for" and just taped a TV special for PBS Truth About Money Program.

Kevin Phillips is a comedian and storyteller by night and an IT professional by morning and most of the afternoon. Hailing from quaint Spring Hill, Kansas, Kevin builds on his Midwest upbringing and endless fascination with yelling. Kevin can be seen performing across various venues all over the DC/Baltimore area. Kevin also co-produces the Encyclopedia Show DC at the Woolly Mammoth and likes to spend his free time sleeping upright.
