Toronto STRIP Spelling Bee – U of Tease Edition

Friday Sept. 08  //  10:30 pm //  $10 at the door

★★★ TORONTO STRIP SPELLING BEE – Sept. 8, 2017 – U of TEASE Edition! ★★★

WARNING: There may be NUDITY in this show.

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!


Sign-up at 10:30 PM sharp!
Bee starts at 11 PM
$10 at the door
FREE if you compete! (AND we buy you a drink!)

Please note that we must cap our number of strip-spellers at 10 to ensure an expedient and entertaining evening.

We are also taking contestant sign-ups in advance! But we are limiting early sign-ups to HALF of the allotted ten spellers. Email inconsolablecat@hotmail.com with “SPELLTHIS” in the subject line if you are interested in signing up early!

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.

Both the winner of the Bee and the Best Striptease of the night win (a) A CD with over an hour of cats purring! (b) A Choose-Your-Own-Adventure style book from the POV of a kitten!

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 with all things, if you compete in COSTUME, the Secret Judge will look more favourably in your direction, though special costuming is not compulsory. As this is our U of TEASE edition, you are best served by wearing something you would wear in class. Use your imagination!

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.

Sometimes, after an event, we get kind folks coming up to us asking us how they can help out with future quirky events. We are so grateful for your kindness and enthusiasm! But perhaps the Most Helpful Thing You Can Do is a thing that doesn’t feel like very much help, but which is IN FACT the Most Helpful Thing You Can Do – and that’s to share the event page on your Facebook Wall and let your friends know about it. That’s it. It takes a few seconds, but is incredibly helpful. Seriously. Collectively, you all know thousands & thousands of people we have never met. If you could spread the word about quirky events, that helps us out manifestly and improves greatly the chances of quirky events continuing to happen! Thank you in advance.
