This month, we celebrate stories about what lies beneath… Underwear!
Get ready for the big reveal, as we bring together a laundry bag of fabulous storytellers to tell tales about undergarments of all shapes and sizes. Featuring tales about burlesque, jungle juice mishaps, Japanese panty thieves, and finding the perfect bra, this month’s show truly has your ass covered.

reveal about us. From the sublime to the surprising, each show is
as diverse and tempting as the contents of a lost and found box.
Also featuring an object trivia contest and a chance for a random
audience member to share his/her own 5-minute tale involving the
month’s featured object.
