Poetry Deathmatch Cabaret is an all out extravaganza of an evening that pits improvising typewriter poets against each other in the smoky backroom of burlesque, booze, and song. In a world where prohibition is real and poetry is outlawed, these dueling poets create objects of illicit beauty on the spot to carry your favor and save their skin, all the while being stalked by a burlesque dancer. Beginning with ideas from you, the audience, performers compete in a series of increasingly herculean tasks to see who will be poet laureate of the apocalypse. The risqué, social critique, and satire live side-by-side in this speakeasy for thirsty souls. Come burn down the night with us.

Praise for our previous show, Quick Draw Poetry Cabaret:
"...high-spirited demonstration of masterful word play, ticklish nonsense and bawdy humor, which never seems to run out of pleasant surprises." - Stage Raw
