Stand-up Comedy at Bare Oaks Family Naturist Park

In early 2013, Lianne Mauladin contacted us to see if we would be interested in having the stand-up comedians from the Merry Janes of Comedy perform at Bare Oaks Family Naturist Park. When asked if they were OK with performing clothes-free, Lianne replied that they were fine with us being naked but didn’t think they would have to be nude. After our Ethical Naturism philosophy was explained as the reason why nudity is required, she said she would ask the other comics. While she had some difficulty finding comedians willing to perform nude, she did manage to put together an excellent show. Since then, it has become a personal challenge for many in the comedy community. Performing stand-up is already one of the most intimidating performance formats; doing it nude is one of the few things that can make it even more challenging. As Aisha Alpha said in a June 2015 Torontoist article:

Comedy, for Alfa, “is me making myself vulnerable on stage, and watching a vulnerable reaction to what I put out there. I’ll be doing comedy in the nude at Bare Oaks naturist resort on June 27, and I feel like things are coming full circle: I get ‘naked’ on stage by being vulnerable regularly with my stand up comedy, and now I’m actually doing it! Nightmare juice or, perhaps, a super liberating experience.”

Some have done it repeatedly. Many have been inspired to write and incorporate new material in their routines. Others are patiently (and perhaps anxiously) waiting for their turn…


Shows are free-of-charge for registered guests and members of Bare Oaks Family Naturist Park. They are held during the two volleyball tournament weekends. (July 1st weekend and 2nd weekend in August)
