Writer, storyteller, gender-jammer, and raconteur S. Bear Bergman is coming to town, bringing his usual mouthful of tender, dirty, complicated, challenging joyful words. But this is not just a reading-a Speakeasy is a whole show. Expect jokes, stories, smut, and rough drafts, plus Improv Storytime, where the audience provides the story topic and Bear tells a fresh, unrehearsed story. Come enjoy the snap and crackle of a live show--something that cannot be repeated, paused, or saved. S. Bear Bergman is the author or editor of five books (most recently the anthology Gender Outlaws: The Next Generation, with Kate Bornstein), four award-winning solo performances, and numerous contributions to anthologies on all manner of topics from the sacred to the extremely profane. A long-time activist, Bear continues to work at the points of intersection between and among gender, sexuality, and culture and spends a lot of time discouraging people from installing traffic signals there.
