So here’s how it happened.

I’m a stand up comic based in New York City, and I produce something called "The Naked Show." The Naked Show is exactly what it sounds like—stand up comedy performed in the nude. The audience is mostly clothed, and usually equal parts excited and nervous at the prospect of seeing people perform naked. It’s a cool vibe for comedy, a packed house full of people who are just a little bit uncomfortable. So, it made sense when I was invited to perform at Solair, a family nudist resort.  

Solair is the oldest nudist resort in the country; it started as a nudist gun club in 1934. Yep, gun club. Their website describes Solair as “a family oriented resort and campground where people of all ages can relax and discover the freedom of recreation without clothing.” Located on 360 acres in Woodstock, Connecticut (not Woodstock, New York, which is where Woodstock the concert happened). It’s a 3 hour drive from New York City. There are no trains or buses that go anywhere remotely near the campground. Trust me, I looked.
