BAD!SLAM!NO!BISCUIT! IS THE POETRY SLAM THAT GIVES YOU A STAGE, A MICROPHONE, AND TWO MINUTES WITH NO MUSIC NO PROPS AND YOUR ORIGINAL MATERIAL FOR FIRST PRIZES.
Yes, that’s right, THE POETRY SLAM, and BAD!SLAM!NO!BISCUIT! wants you! It wants you to give it your words, your arm waving, your pointing finger masses yearning to be free. Free from the bonds of your hips and knees, free of your mouth, free of having to wash the dishes after dinner and take out the garbage!
And for this special February event of BAD!SLAM!NO!BISCUIT! we bring you the feature act Shahed Sharify, the visual odyssey Max Sees Max, and the launch of Jeff Buckley’s Hallelujah Double A Side.
This is what Shahed Sharify had to say for himself when asked for his 100 word bio!
‘BAD!SLAM!NO!BISCUIT! is proud to present 3 time AVO violator, Shahed Sharify. Shahed is well known to Federal Police as a petty criminal and local vagrant. Having graduated High School in 2015, he celebrated his 35th birthday by drunkenly trying to call Barack Obama, but he got the number wrong and reached the organiser of BAD!SLAM!NO!BISCUIT! who thought he was hilarious. Shahed is a regular at comedy festivals around the country, and has performed amongst other comedians such James from Weetangera and Tim ‘the human weasel’ Hussein. You will definitely laugh.’
This is what Max Barkers says on the website of his project Max Sees Max:
‘My name is Max. Everything else should be pretty self explanatory.’
And from the creative team behind Jeff Buckley’s Hallelujah Double A Side we have this artistic statement:
‘The result of a musical pact/challenge, each original song is about (and named after) JEFF BUCKLEY'S HALLELUJAH. Two original songs named after a cover. Maybe not the cover version you need, but the one you deserve.’
So join BAD!SLAM!NO!BISCUIT!, The Master of Conflict, The Score Adder, The Sacrificial Poet and all the feature acts in the Phoenix Pub for BAD!SLAM!NO!BISCUIT!!
BRING YOUR WORDS, BRING YOU, BRING YOUR FAVOURITE PET.
And remember 2 minutes, no music, no props, your original material- unless you’re a rebel rule-breaker for whom rules mean nothing.
