Set around the annual Dirty Dish Porn Awards, meet an irresistibly eccentric line-up of porn stars, directors and even Harder's own mother! Who will be crowned Best Porn Star of the Year? Zach Parks, the trailer park kid turned Twitter socialite? Gay for pay bang bro’s, Patrick and Duncan? Or that home grown, homo-from-the-range himself, Chris Harder—he’ll put a camera anywhere, you know!

One porn star, an orgy of personalities!

Porn to be a Star is written and performed by Chris Harder and directed by Obie Award-winning performer and playwright David Drake. Running just under 70 minutes, Porn to be a Star is hilarious, heartfelt and biting in all the right places. 

FEBRUARY 14TH AND 15TH AT THE OLYMPUS THEATER INSIDE MENJO'S!

7:30PM DOORS/8PM SHOW



"The sentiments expressed in [Porn to be a Star] are as real as a Chris Harder money shot."

-Michael Musto, Chris Harder's 8 Steps to Gay Porn Stardom, Paper Magazine


"Witty social commentary... Harder showcases his burlesque talents while also letting audiences see his brain and heart."

-David Clarke, BroadwayWorld.com


"Harder puts his traditional theatre training to excellent use in this production, fueling campy antics with genuine heart and vulnerability. He turns expectations (and himself) upside down."

-Adrienne Sowers, TheReviewshub.com


"This one man burlesque show is a hit for its hunky, furry figured acting and even more so for the 31-year-old North Dakota boy’s confidence and charm."

-John McDonald, SouthFloridaGayNews.com
