Let’s just hope they don’t need to fry bacon.

Two cooks who bill themselves as Bare Naked Chefs will heat up the launch party for a new live stream channel from local playwright and theater producer Ronnie Larsen, known for his gay-themed works with titles such as “Grindr Mom” and “Making Porn.”

The kick-off party for RonnieLarsenTV.com will be Thursday, May 6, at The Foundry Theatre in Wilton Manors.

Making the full frontal food — we hear it’s going to be all the tacos you can eat and all the wine/champagne you can drink — will be Patrick Clayton and Marc Howard.

“They’re just nudists and they like to cook,” explains Ronnie Larson. “So I said, let’s do a show called ‘Bare Naked Chefs.’ You know, there are a lot of naked chefs out there, but they’re not really naked. They wear an apron. They’re really bare chested. Ours is quite graphic. We don’t hide behind a mixing bowl.”

Pianist Bobby Peaco will play songs from Larsen’s 1920s-era musical “Come Out! Come Out!” On the virtual cooking-in-the-buff demonstration Friday, the dishes created will be chicken piccata and dark chocolate chip cookies.

Beginning with the disrobed duo in a virtual video the next day on May 7, RonnieLarsenTV.com will stream a new show every Friday at 9 p.m., much of it based on Larsen’s content culled from various wink-and-a-nod shows such as his adults-only plays and explicit talk show interviews (which you really have to see to believe).

“Naked people find me; they just gravitate to me,” adds Larsen, who also won critical praise last season with a serious turn onstage in his play “An Evening With John Wayne Gacy Jr.” and sold-out audiences with his dragalicious performance in “The Devil in Melania.”
