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

Dick and Duane (Richie Cohen and Duane Tragis) fell in love as teenagers, exchanging rings from a gumball machine. They decided to follow in the footsteps of other married duos like Burns & Allen, Stiller & Meara and Sonny & Cher, becoming the first husband-and-husband comedy team. 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.

Dick and Duane

Dick and Duane (Richie Cohen and Duane Tragis) met as teenagers, fell in love and exchanged rings from a gumball machine. But finding a soulmate and a cheap apartment so early in life was not enough. They decided to follow in the footsteps of other married duos like Burns & Allen, Stiller & Meara and Sonny & Cher, becoming the first husband and husband comedy team. They’re part traditional burlesque comics, part old-school stand-up comedy team, part 1970s variety show and part vintage gay porn. They’re neither glamorous, fabulous, A-list, nor concerned with celebrity gossip. But what they do best is to skewer and deconstruct the art of comedy itself while shattering preconceived notions of married gay couples.

She is the host of Barbershop Stories, which features storytellers performing true tales in a salon in Brooklyn. Then she chops off their hair. Dawn delivers speeches and workshops about the nature of stories to develop vision, identity and leadership potential, and is a storytelling coach through The Moth’s Community Outreach Program. She loves being both a twin and a Trinidadian.

Susan Kent

Susan Kent is a freelance writer, storyteller and future New York Times-bestselling memoirist. She spent over half of her life in the Deep South and has been working out a lot of those demons on her blog, Southern Discomforts, for quite a while. Susan also over-shares on a regular basis at shows like The Moth, on the Risk! Podcast, and encourages others to do the same at her own show, Tell It: Brooklyn.

Frank Liotti

Frank Liotti’s criminal spree has taken him to Law and Order: Criminal Intent, Law and Order: Special Victims Unit, Jonny Zero, Canturbury’s Law and other televised murder scenes. A graduate of Yale School of Drama as well as SUNY Purchase, he landed in The New York Times for the production of “Cats Talk Back,” a mockumentary of life as a cast member of the Broadway hit “Cats.” As a stand-up comic, his sardonic wit, powerhouse characters and bizarre stream of consciousness are garnering growing buzz about the scene. He will appear in the film “BearCity 2,” a TLA Films release, this fall.

William Mullin

William Mullin has written and performed with Ed Helms of the Office as well as writing for Jane Lynch. He has performed at The Moth, and produces a storytelling show in Provincetown called Closet Cases.
