What’s the universal experience tying all humans together? The answer of course is, we’ve all been burned, or maybe even burned someone else, in the romance department. And we love to talk about it.
BAD DATES is a live talk show where authors, Eden Dawn and Ashod Simonian, interview well known Portlanders about their cringiest (and most entertaining) dating experiences gone awry.
This pair knows all about dates. To coauthor the PNBA bestselling Portland Book of Dates, the married duo went on hundreds of dates to find the best to include in the cheeky guidebook. In between guests, BACKFENCE PDX host/producer Frayn Masters will read selected stories from the audience.
GUEST STARS FOR BAD DATES
- IZohnny – Married duo, Isaiah Esquire and Johnny Nuriel, are known as the “Goliaths of Glam,” entertaining audiences all over with their fabulous style, bendy bodies, and burlesque performances.
- Bowen Ames is a creative director extraordinaire who has influenced your shopping habits whether you knew it or not working with brands like Sub-Pop, Mylo, Stella McCartney, Amazon, and Travel Oregon.
- Scrappers Justin Scrappers Morrison is first, and foremost, an urban folk artist. Previously, he was the art director of the Portland Mercury and founder of Stay Wild Magazine. He is now creative director for the iconic Danner Boots brand and has so few personal boundaries that he can usually be found naked in public talking about his codependency, alcoholic recovery, and personal growth (wink wink).
When you buy tickets to our shows you automatically help support our Triple 10 Donation Coalition! What is that you say? Both the shows and the venue have committed to donating portions of profits to support the community. BACKFENCE PDX: ROULETTE has donated 10% of all ticket sales to Oregon Food Bank since 2016, and will continue to do so, to fight food insecurity. 10% of ticket profits from the BAD DATES show go to the Q Center and the work they do supporting our LGBTQ+ community as everyone deserves to be loved just as they are. And ALBERTA HOUSE will set aside 10% of its bar sales into the BACKFENCE PDX Community Pot, providing assistance to those who need funding to hold events at Alberta House.
