Reading tomorrow.

Hey!! I'm doing Poetry vs. Comedy again, replacing one of the other poets who dropped out. Not sure who.

Last time I got the lowest score! Let's see if I can get even lower this time! I'm going to try harder to be funny this time, but I always ending up just horrifying people.

You have to come just to hear Adira! She's the funniest woman in the world that sings! She puts Silverman to shame!

Here's the deets: (I'm replacing one of the poets, just imagine my name there)

PVC: The Poetry vs. Comedy Variety Show is neither an ordinary poetry slam nor a regular stand-up comedy show. PVC is a battle of wits and rhymes where the stanzas and the stand-up collide. The show brings together the high-paced excitement of a poetry slam with the astute hilarity of smart, observational comedy.

Good luck!

That reading sounds intimidating, but fun.

Thanks, Valerie. It's a little intimidating, but the MC's are really nice and it's not a "real" slam.
