We are always thrilled when a storytelling event that is also raising money for benefit comes along. We love it even more if some good friends of Back Fence are on the bill! On December 14th, Planned Parenthood Advocates of Oregon will present “Naughty Listed: Stories of Holiday Misbehavior” at The Bagdad Theater.
Performers will tell stories of awkward interactions during the most wonderful time of the year. From terrible sexual encounters, to family drama and try turkeys, everyone will walk away realizing how normal their loved ones actually are. All benefits go to the Planned Parenthood Advocates of Oregon, helping Oregon remain a pro-choice state.
We are also crazy excited that former Back Fence storyteller Jimmy Radosta is the organizer of the event, and a few other talented alums are among the storytellers. This includes Meagan Kate, one of our long-time Back Fence Assistants, but you have to promise not to tell her Mom — and lovely Live Wire host, Courtenay Hameister.
The show is hosted by local podcast masters Cort & Fatboy (former storyteller), who will lead you through the evening of stories by:
• Ron Funches, standup comic (recently featured on Conan)
• Courtenay Hameister, host of Live Wire!
• auGi, writer/performer of SexyNurd
• Meagan Kate, writer, comic, actress, your BFF
• Kim Stegeman aka Rocket Mean, Rose City Roller girl
• Enrique E. Andrade, stage actor and the Spanish voice of MAX
• Gabe Dinger, standup comic
• Nicole Sangsuree, singer/songwriter
So grab some friends, and enjoy an evening of laughs while giving to a great cause!
