More about Back Fence PDX: RUSSIAN ROULETTE…
How it works: each show begins with a full wheel of juicy story prompts. One of the 6 storytellers will be randomly drawn. They spin the wheel to decide the prompt for their story. They can play or pass. If they pass another teller can steal their prompt. Then the risky part…each storyteller has only 5 minutes to come up with a true 5-minute story based on that prompt! It’s like we invented a new game called truth AND dare.

The audience votes for a winner at the end of the night who will receive over $250 of booty from our sponsors and partners including $50 from Skin by Marywynn, a Betsy and Iya $25 GC/pair of earrings, tickets to Helium Comedy Club, $20 to Powell’s, a sexy lip treatment from Skin by Marywynn, $10 to Civic Taproom, a glass contained prize from New Deal distillery, tea from The Jasmine Pearl, two tickets to Portland Center Stage, a Finger Bang gift certificate, and bragging rights for life!

The winner also draws an audience winner to receive all of the above (minus the 50 bucks) PLUS $100 to Popina Swimwear and two VIP tickets to a RUSSIAN ROULETTE show!

The storytelling winner will be invited to come back to the next show!
