Doors 7 p.m. / Show 8 p.m. | $15 ADV / $17 Doors | 21+

Russian Roulette begins with a full wheel of juicy story prompts. One of the 8 storytellers will be randomly drawn. They spin the giant Bunk Bar WHEEL to decide the prompt for their story. They can play or pass.

If they pass another teller can steal their prompt. Then the risky part … each storyteller has only 5 minutes to come up with a true 5-minute story based on that prompt! It’s like we invented a new game called truth AND dare.

At the end of the night, the audience will select a winner who will receive 50 bucks and some other cool prizes, like bragging rights for life! A lucky audience member will win prizes as well.

Hosted by B. Frayn Masters + Mindy Nettifee with music by Sex Life DJ Bobby

STORYTELLERS for this round of Russian Roulette include our first TWO TIME winner LEATHER STORRS (PDX, Noble Rot Chef), along with ARTHUR BRADFORD (PDX, Emmy Nominated Filmmaker), LAUREN WEEDMAN (LA, Critically Acclaimed Performer + Writer), SHANNON BALCOM (PDX, Receptionist), BUCK BALL (LA, Standup Comedian), MATT BORS (PDX, Award Winning Political Cartoonist), LESLEY HARPER (PDX, Arts Educator), NORINA BECK (PDX, Teacher of Children), and BRIAN ELLIS (PDX, Poet).

    Backfence PDX: Russian Roulette

    The lineup is stellar,
    the potential divine.
    Will they flop, will they fly?
    A mystery, lest the tickets be mine!
