Naked Girls Reading is exactly what it sounds like: completely naked women reading literature aloud. It's a sexy book club, a sapphic slumber party, a sumptuous and scandalous event sure to arouse, educate, and entertain all at once. Come along to experience the ancient and beautiful art of storytelling – and also, you know, boobs.
With a brand spanking new cast every edition (don’t spank the cast), and a completely different reading list each time, it’s a truly one-of-a-kind cabaret show that has our cult following coming back for more. Expect poetry, children’s literature, non-fiction and, of course, the worst and most hilarious erotica the internet can provide us. You’ll laugh, you’ll cry, you’ll want to get naked. Nab ya tickets now.
Our 2021 shows are as bold as ever:
Friday, Feb 12th – The Futurism Edition
How are we shaping the world of tomorrow? With curves galore, we explore all things robotic, sciencey, nerdy, and newfangled. Hosted by his highness Hugo Grrrl.
Saturday, April 17th – The Pride Edition
We’re here, we’re queer, we’re naked! We fly all the rainbow flags and delve into the history of resistance, hail the homo heroes, celebrate all the sexualities, and revel in the bending of gender. Hosted by the ever divine Judy Virago.
Starring Gingerella/Willy Smackntush
Saturday, June 26th – The Boys Edition!
Time to let the boys have a ‘crack’. We’re deconstructing traditional toxic masculinity and challenging the social norms. There’s no need to “man up”, we’ll be expressing all the emotions, exploring the gender spectrum, and raising up the guys to be exactly who they are.
Hosted by the ever divine Judy Virago and starring the man behind it all - the legend that is Hugo Grrrl!
Saturday, August 28th – The Wellington Edition
We go hyper-local with all our readings taken from the talent in town! Check out the clever clogs we have in the area and sink our teeth into their super-smart scrawlings. Hosted by the ever divine Judy Virago.
Saturday, October 16th – The Sex Edition
Fancy a bit of “how’s yer father”? In the mood for some rumpy-pumpy? In the know about nooky? For our final NGR of the year, we’re setting our sights on self-love, masturbation, sensuality, and all things shagadelic. Hosted by the ever divine Judy Virago. Starring Forni-Kate Creatif Kate
And it's not just for the ladies! Our events are open to everyone, from all walks of life, of all genders, all sexualities, all everything. Come along. (No Stag Dos though. You know why.)
Please note! Seating is not allocated so make sure to arrive early to nab a good vantage point. Doors open one hour before showtime and door sales are cash only. Latecomers may not be admitted as we allow waitlisted punters to use any vacant seats at 15minutes after the event’s start time.
The event space is located upstairs with a service elevator available on request, but it’s essential that you get in touch with the Hugo’s Gigs team before the gig if you have any accessibility concerns so we can best help you out.
