The Naked Comedy Showcase at Club Oberon tonight

The Naked Comedy Showcase adds a new venue to its roster tonight with a show at Club Oberon. Producer and host Andy Ofiesh launched the show -- which features, for those who think the title is some clever reference, comedians who perform naked -- at ImprovBoston in December of 2005, and continues to produce the show there the first Wednesday of every month (he also does it at the People's Improv Theater in NY the first Saturday of every month).

It's an interesting dynamic, tough to pull off an onstage persona with any bravado, or really to maintain any sort of pre-fab persona, when you're standing nude in front of an audience trying to make them laugh. Quite often, comedians don't like to put their name in the press for the show, but Ofiesh tells me Micah Sherman is closing tonight.
