Tues, Jan 19, 7 pm SLT • OPEN MIC • Satire!
Irish satire reaches right back to the earliest bards, whose role it was to rip the face off leaders not doing their jobs ... sound familiar? Irish satire can be savage, gentle, and everything in between, and includes literary giants like Jonathan Swift and Oscar Wilde as well as modern writers like Brian O'Nolan (aka Flann O'Brien and Myles na gCopaleen), and shows up in prose, poetry, plays and journalism.
Tonight we'll celebrate this Irish tradition with an open mic ... so bring your own satiric efforts, or your personal favorites, to read yourself in voice or pass along to me in a notecard. Savage wit welcome, but do keep in mind our PG standards ... let's see if we can cut close to the bone without spilling too much blood!
As always, live reading in voice, chat in voice or text ... all welcome
