A performance of the introductory speech from V for Vendetta, live at Busboys and Poets February 8, 2017. The second poem is a rarely heard classic by John Clare, whose poetry was referenced in a Christopher Hitchens book I recently read and thankfully checked out. Recorded from a slightly different vantage point, so sound quality on this piece is better than usual. Enjoy!
I started writing a version of Dickens that I could perform and it turned into kind of a hip hop piece after I made Bob Cratchett into Bob Scratchitt. Guess I have been hanging with my DC poet buddies too long! Anyway it turned into a nice little story. Garrison Kellior eat your heart out.
A delightful comedic break form reality, performed live at Bus Boys & Poets November 23, the day before Thanksgiving. Featuring "Thanksgiving Play-by-Play" a short piece originally written for the Trivia stand-up challenge at the DC Improv. Bonus piece is an ancient, and incredibly silly one, "The Incredible Phizgink" co-starring host Dwayne B as Matt Hattor.
A reading of JFK's Inaugural Speech just to give some counterpoint to the ridiculous and often hateful rhetoric coming out of the Republican Convention. When will we ever leave that kind of Rush-radio rabble rousing behind?
Unfortunately the sound quality is dismal; headphones are recommended.
