$15

In this hilarious and borderline-terrifying reflection, Lucas looks back on his many close encounters of the sexually transmissible kind. Through his naked (yet carefully wrapped) adventures, he struggles with his ability to remain sex-positive in an HIV-negative society. "This will undoubtedly be the most candid talk about STDs you'll ever sit through, and probably the funniest." - Orlando Weekly "Brooks tells his tale with wit, humor and a raised eyebrow that would challenge The Rock in facial hair supremacy." -…

This is more of an AutoBio than a Bio. The truth is most comedians write their own bios. I’m not judging. It’s a lot easier to brag about one’s own accomplishments while hiding behind third person. They are very well written. It seems comedians either 1. Have a Masters in English, or 2. A Thesaurus, and a lot of free time. I have neither. I could write things like: Chad’s devilishly naughty nature shines through like comedy gold when he…

Yet over time, they and their musical kindred spirits in the Boston-based band began to hear other things, the microtonal and rhythmic moments that hinted at a wider musical world. From bare field recordings…
