Friends of Single People: BKCF Edition @ Littlefield

Friends of Single People is the show where you get to represent your single friends onstage in a live dating game. Your single friends may cringe and remain as anonymous as they want in the crowd, unless you are selected! The New York Post calls FOSP “part roast, part game-show, part social experiment”. Arrive early to register you and a friend. Open to all orientations. Out of 100 couples matched, 5 couples have managed to develop actual long term relationships. One couple just moved in together. It’s amazing and defies all odds.
