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 pull & read stories from the audience.

GUEST STARS FOR BAD DATES will be announced soon.

When you buy tickets to our shows you automatically help support our triple 10 donation coalition! What is that you say? Well, BACKFENCE PDX: ROULETTE donates 10% of all ticket sales to Oregon Food Bank as we have done since 2016, because everyone deserves food security, and BAD DATES will be donating 10% of ticket profits 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 do not currently have the funding to hold events at Alberta House.
