Hard Ish Bodies says
The unshakeable men of Stoney’s Rock Hard Palace making a living at shaking their wares with the confidence that isn’t automatic for all shapes and sizes. Too fat. Too skinny. Too ginger. They’ve heard it all and are taking the stage nonetheless and they want to entertain you in the way a queen like you deserves to be. What they lack in definition, they more than make up for in wit, charm, and presence.

Pulling inspiration from by the Magic Mike films, Chris Farley’s SNL Chippendales sketch, and a realization that “sexy” comes from within, each week’s improvised show follows a featured performer as they discover what it means to be a male entertainer and, ultimately, what it means to be a man. Whether it’s getting the gang back together, going on a cross-country road trip, or saving the show, all the while bringing to light male vulnerability through comedy.

Hard-ish Bodies aims to plant the seed for social change and a desire to show you how sexy real men can be when wearing nothing but confidence…and amazing underwear thanks to our sponsor, Package Menswear, who will give away prizes weekly for some lucky audience members.
