Each Stripped Stories show has a strict no-recording policy. In fact, audience members must pledge to not even speak, after leaving, of what they heard that night. Producers and hosts Margot Leitman and Giulia Rozzi enforce this in order to create an environment where guest performers can be candid, a necessary ingredient in any story about sex. The theme never changes, nor does it need to; Stripped Stories has been titillating audiences with memories of romps in the hay since 2007, when the show first started in New York. It's been bicoastal for the past three years, and happens once every other month at the Upright Citizens Brigade, where it's hosted Nick Kroll, Reggie Watts and Tami Sagher, among others. Each show also features a musical guest singing sex-themed songs, as well as the most popular part of the evening: audience participation. The winner of an elaborate, full-crowd game of "Never Have I Ever" gets to share his or her own saucy tale onstage. A recent winner was a nebbishy guy who pretended to be a pilot in order to get a woman to have sex with him; it worked.
