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.
