Strip Spelling Bee in TORONTO! Halloween Edition

Halloween Edition

The game is played a lot like strip poker, but it's a spelling bee, and it's played in front of a live audience of hooters, hollerers and hecklers who want to see some smart and sexy skin!
Friday, October 22, 2010
Buddies in Bad Times Theatre
12 Alexander Street
(1 blk east of Yonge)
Toronto, Ontario

Sign-up at 10 PM sharp!
Bee starts at 10:30 PM
$10 at the door


Please note that we must cap our number of strip-spellers at 15 to ensure an expedient and entertaining evening.

If you like this event, you might be delighted to discover that it is only one in a QUIRKY TRILOGY of events happening in Toronto that weekend. We hope you will come to one or all of them!

FRIDAY, OCT. 22: Strip Spelling Bee:

SATURDAY, OCT. 23: Slowdance Night of the Living Dead:

SUNDAY, OCT. 24: Crowd Karaoke:



One by one, participants are asked to spell a word. If they get it right, they sit down. If they get it wrong, they must striptease A THIRD of their clothing off, and that is considered their first "strike". When they misspell a second word, that is their second strike and they must striptease ANOTHER third off. A third and final strike requires that they strip down to their underwear. Or, NAKED - whichever they are most comfortable with.

After three strikes, a participant is out of the competition. But they should take heart – because while they may have lost, the audience has most certainly won.

The winner of the Bee takes home (a) a couple beers, (b) a CD with recordings of over an hour of cats purring loudly; and (c) a Legoman pin.

Best striptease will also take home (a) a couple beers, (b) a CD with recordings of over an hour of cats purring loudly; and (c) a Legoman pin.

While the Best Speller of the night will be chosen through purely quantitative means, Best Stripper is chosen in a more qualitative manner by our Secret Judge whom we have embedded in the audience. As this is the Pre-Halloween edition of Strip Spelling Bee, if you compete in costume, the Secret Judge will look more favourably in your direction.

All striptease spellers do not pay cover.
Anyone can drop out of the competition at any time AFTER the completion of the SECOND round.

This is a queer, senior and trans-friendly event. We have a NO BOOING policy strictly in effect. No photos are allowed except by our Official Photographer. Our goal is to have everyone feel safe, secure and comfortable enough to strip and spell.

Regarding the No Photos Rule - we also have a Snitch Policy. If you are a member of the audience and you witness someone taking a surreptitious photo, BY ALL MEANS, interrupt the proceedings, come up to one of the hosts - SNITCH on the guilty party, and once they have been dealt with, you will be rewarded with a free drink.

We thank you for your patronage and understanding.


Recently, we were fortunate enough to get some MEDIA COVERAGE:
