Comedy is about baring one's soul on stage—but how many comedians can bare their bodies?
The gloves come off—along with everything else—at Naked Roast, where comedians strip down to their knickers (and beyond) and insult the living daylights out of each other. The show features host Zac Amico and featuring Keith Carey, Lindsey Jennings, Joel Walkowski, Jasmin Leigh and more performing in the nude. Over the rest of the three-day Skankfest comedy party at Creek and the Cave on June 23–25, you can check out clothed stand-up sets from over 100 performers, including heavy hitters like Reggie Watts, Artie Lange, Jim Gaffigan, Michelle Wolf, Bert Kreischer, Ari Shaffir, Dan Soder, Chris Gethard, Matteo Lane and more. Visit the Skankfest website to see the full roster.
In addition to top-notch stand-up, attendees can check out live podcasts of Legion of Skanks, Kill Tony, Tuesdays with Stories and more, get tattoos, rub elbows with the comedians at meet and greets and indulge in tasty eats and good cheap booze, something the brave comics participating in the Naked Roast will surely need plenty of.
Passes are sold out, but the fest is selecting a random Twitter follower every Friday to receive two free VIP passes, so follow @skankfestnyc and try your luck.
