The Poetry Vs Comedy Variety Show
“where the stanzas and the stand-up collide”
PVC (Poetry Vs Comedy) is neither an ordinary poetry slam nor a stand-up comedy show. The Poetry Vs Comedy Variety Show is a battle of wits and rhymes where the stanzas and the stand-up collide. The show is February 23, 8PM at Galapagos Arts Space in Williamsburg (70 N. 6th St)
Produced by writer and literary series curator Cheryl B., the show premiered last summer much to the delight of performance poetry and comedy fans. This year, PVC boasts a line-up of venerable poets and rising star comedians.
