BLEAK! is filming a documentary of our trip to Austin, Texas and performing your dares along the way.

BLEAK! is filming a documentary of our trip to Austin Sketchfest where we will perform our New York based show, STOMACHTOWN

We'll be traveling to and from New York City and Austin, Texas and along the way we'll be documenting the adventure. To spice it up a little bit, we need you to supply us with some really awesome dares. That's right, you control the documentary, our sanity, and our humility!

We will email anyone who donates $25+ for their dares so we can discuss them and keep the organized. Please do not post your dare in the comments sections so we can keep them a secret! We will also email you for your t shirt sizes, drawing ideas, ect. If you have any questions please let us know.

DARE RULES If a genie can have rules so can we.

If you give us a $50 dare (or receive a dare with a donation of over $50): We cannot refuse it or modify it, provided it doesn't break one of these rules.

  • We will not physically harm a stranger, or eachother (too badly)
  • We must be able to post it to YouTube (we will censor things though)
  • It must be along the trip (New York to Texas, so no Chicago-based dares)
  • We will not commit any punishable crimes
  • The dare should not cost more that $25

If you submit a dare that breaks any one of these rules: We still might do it, but most likely we will contact you for another dare.

If you give us a $25 dare: We have the right to refuse it. We want to do dares and we want to earn your money, so we will try to contact you for a different dare or modify it ourselves.

We want to spread out the torture evenly among the 5 members of Bleak! so we recommend group dares. If you assign a dare to a specific person and they have a lot of dares, we may reassign the dare to someone else.

Once in Texas, we'll perform our show, surprise Austin with the silliest weekend on record and then make our way back up to New York still recording dares. Every donation helps document this long, arduous, incredibly fun and possibly humiliating adventure. Thank you again so much!
