Near Sex For Work is a multimedia-filled solo show exposing the true story of how one timid man has found fleeting moments of confidence through his jobs facilitating other people’s orgasms. Since first getting hired by an adult toy store while still a virgin, Daniel Shar has gone on to find unlikely success in a variety of sex industry jobs - from running women’s OnlyFans accounts to playing non-nude non-sexual side characters in adult films. Tastefully raunchy with a throbbing heart, Near Sex For Work takes audiences on a roller coaster of climactic twists and blue-balling turns as Shar chronicles his ridiculous resumé with support from the most sensational videos, audio clips, and images he has amassed along the way (and censored for this production). Fans of comedy shows that go deeper will gush for this one’s potential to reduce the shame and stigma around sex and its industry while also highlighting the reality that, underneath humanity’s massive range of sexual preferences, everyone is ultimately just craving connection.
PLEASE NOTE: this show is for adults only. It does not contain any visible nudity, but there will be censored adult content and sexually explicit language. Being weird or creepy about all this is strictly prohibited.

Daniel Shar grew up eager to leave North Carolina, realized journalism wasn’t for him at the University of Missouri, devoted himself to sketch and improv in Chicago, and currently enjoys writing comedy in Los Angeles. Shar wrote and directed the indie feature film SCRAPS (Amazon Prime Video). He also co-created and co-starred in a pilot presentation for the narrative/sketch hybrid Jonathanville TV, as well as the web series projects Pickle Pranks, We Have To Move, and Weird Copcept Album. Shar has sold jokes to The Onion and Funny Or Die, done a bit on Conan (TBS), and performed solo shows at Comedy Central Stage, SF Sketchfest, St. Louis Fringe Festival, and more. His other past points of pride include writing and performing topical pieces at The Paper Machete, writing and directing the one-act play Improvised Whose Line Is It Anyway?, and directing Dave Maher Coma Show (This American Life).
