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.
Join these adventurous explorers as Spill! moves to its new digs at Public Assembly.
Hosted by Jefferson (One Life Take Two, Bare!)
Chris Doucette (Comedian)
Heidi Galore (Storyteller, Ex-Cop)
Sinnamon Love (AVN Hall of Fame, Sex, Love and Hip Hop)
Musical guest Ben Lerman (Big Band Hot 100)
. . . and you! You’ve got stories of first-time foibles. Try your luck by putting your name in the hat for a chance to spill all on the Spill! stage.
