"I laughed so hard I almost shit my pants"--Dee, audience member at the March 7 show

“On the first Thursday of every month, Margot Leitman and Giulia Rozzi host “Stripped Stories”
at the Upright Citizen’s Brigade (UCB) Theater in Chelsea. While many storytelling shows veer
into sexual territories, this show guarantees to go there (with grace if not class).
Their website describes the show as “a night of hilarious sex-themed storytelling and games.” Each show
features true stories from Leitman and Rozzi, as well as two guest storytellers. At the midway
point, an audience participation game is played, and before the night concludes, expect a music
act (also sex-themed).
It’s important to note that while Leitman and Rozzi revel unapologetically in their show’s subject
matter, they do so responsibly. At the beginning of each show, Leitman and Rozzi explain to
the consistently packed house, that they have entered a “safe zone.” Amid the raucous laughter,
groans, and cheers, the underlying tone is supportive and judgment-free. The room maintains
a Vegas approach: what’s seen and heard in the theater, stays in the theater. So while Leitman,
Rozzi and company’s stories are completely true and unforgettable—the juicy details are meant
to stay off of Facebook, Twitter, and yes, the Examiner.
If you’ve never seen storytellers perform their craft, “Stripped Stories” is a great place to
experience funny, seasoned soloists. Make reservations at least a couple of days in advance on
the UCB website. Tickets are $5 and the show runs close to 90 minutes.” -Examiner.com
