Each month, Spill! 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, Spill! opens doors to bedrooms, back seats and dungeons to tell what your mama left out about the birds, bees and in-betweens.
The evening’s theme is “werk.” Join these hard-working storytellers as they werk it for you:
Hosted by Jefferson (One Life Take Two, Bare!)
Ilana Glazer (Comedian, Broad City)
Morgan (Comedian, Storyteller)
Michael Pope (Michael Pope Is Gay For Pay)
H. Alan Scott (Comedian, SRSLY LOL)
Musical guest Molly Ruth
. . . and you! Put your name in the hat for a chance to spill all on the Spill! stage.
And more! One lucky audience member will win Spill!’s sex-toy raffle, courtesy of Babeland.
Jefferson is the curator and host of Spill. 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 also curates and hosts the monthly series Bare! True Stories of Sex, Desire and Romance.
Morgan describes herself as a “middle-aged woman, provided she lives to be one hundred and eighteen.” A transgendered comic and storyteller, Morgan has appeared at Gotham Comedy Club, Harvey’s in the Castro, The Punchline in San Francisco and the legendary Purple Onion.
Michael Pope is a filmmaker whose music videos are in MTV, LOGO and RAGE rotation and have seen premieres on People, Spin and Pitchfork sites. His award winning experimental film Neovoxer united hundreds of artists from the United States and the Czech Republic in a “primal scream of creative expression” and he was once bestowed the title of “Boston’s Best Visual Artist” by the Boston Phoenix. He continues his career as artist and raconteur with his one man show Michael Pope Is Gay For Pay, chronicling his legendary career as a phone sex operator in New York City.
Molly Ruth’s forthcoming debut LP, “Birth Against the Nation,” includes songs about animals, incest, fear, glory, murder, God, honor, blasphemy, tragedy, fervor, frenzy, longing, dreams, deserts, pain, devotion, crossroads, blood, birds, minds, time and war.
H. Alan Scott, a comedian, writer, and actor, is the Mormon with an intense interest in Fresca! Hailing from a lovingly dysfunctional family from the right side of the tracks in St. Louis, Missouri, he has become what the Chicago Tribune’s Red Eye calls the “hot gay Mormon.” Scott has performed at the Hollywood Improv, the Laugh Factory, Comix, Caroline’s on Broadway, and Chicago’s Lakeshore Theater. You may have also heard him on Sirius/XM Radio or as one of here!TV’s “Hot Gay Comics.” Scott, along with Bryan Wilson, is the co-host and producer of “SRSLY LOL,” an alternative variety show in New York City and Los Angeles. Scott also is the creator and producer of “The Tweet Spot: The Twitter Game Show,” a live game show based on the regular activities of a Twitter user.
