Please note: this month we are meeting upstairs in the Loft.

Each month, Spill! brings together storytellers, comedians, sex educators and others to share true tales from their own experiences of queer 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 us this month as our always aspiring storytellers tell lofty tales:

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

Dick and Duane (Fun with Dick and Duane)

Kevin Allison (The State, Risk!)

Kris Grey (Justin Credible)

Neil Thornton (Funny. Furry. Fierce.)

. . . and you! You had lofty aspirations, been held aloft or simply crashed. Put your name in the hat for a chance to spill all on the Spill! stage.

And still more! One lucky audience member will win one Spill!’s sexy raffle prize.

Dick and Duane™ got their start as the late-night after-show for the Chippendales dancers and in the Lower East Side’s performance art and alternative comedy world before moving up to headline at comedy clubs and major gay events. Dick and Duane are currently developing their web series, Fun With Dick and Duane, based on the real-life, sitcom-like experiences they share daily with their sizable Facebook audience.
