You know the old joke, why did the chicken cross the road?. Well, it looks like Clean Comedy is inspiring Poets to cross the road to Clean Poetry via the Gospel based events in the Metropolis of Chicago called Hot Sauce Poetry. The Hot Sauce Poetry events is every other Friday at 1539 South Pulaski Road.
Back in the day, Poetry was infused with vulgar curse words from varying languages. Examples of multilingual poetic cursing will obviously be omitted. Now, most poets love words and use every word meticulously, using swear words as adjectives for impact. But clean comedy goes a step further in that its goals is to tell a story without vulgar images. The featured poet for the next Hot Sauce Poetry event September 13, 2013, are Vincent Poe Watts, 14yr Army Sergeant Veteran and Spoken Word artist; QUES, “L.Y.R.I.C. movement”, known for cracking the mold of imagination with picturesque words; AD VERB, “L.Y.R.I.C movement”, known for leaving the flavor of every word in the atmosphere for the audience to taste.
The Open Mic segment is from 7:30 p.m. to 9 p.m. The featured artists perform at 9 p.m.. Admission is $7 before 8:30 p.m. and $10 after. Food, drinks and music are an added bonus.
