Poet Thomas Fucaloro & :Kiss*Punch*Poem: + Special Guest Diana Arnold + Open Mic - Thursday, Aug. 11
The Inspired Word presents one of our most unique events ever - featuring in a single set one-of-a-kind poet Thomas Fucaloro with the improv comedy stylings of :Kiss*Punch*Poem:
Fucaloro will be reading his poems as the improvisers (Meghann Plunkett, Alex Marino, Paul Barker, and Nathan Peterman). act them out. Which begs the question: Is this an improv show inspired by poetry or poetry inspired by improv?
In addition to Fucaloro and company, there will be a 12-slot open mic open to all types of artists and a special guest performance by one-woman-show sensation Diana Arnold, who will be doing a new piece celebrating her 10-year anniversary in New York City.
Hosted by 3-time HBO Def Poetry star Gemineye.

Thomas Fucaloro is a New York-based poet and one of the most original poetic voice you'll ever find. He is an editor at Uphook Press and authored the much-lauded book of poetry called "Inheriting Craziness is like a Soft Halo of Light."
Diana Arnold is an actress who starred in her own one woman show 86'd, which explored the world of a New York City waitress. In complicated poetic verse, both poignant and comedic, she told her story about a life with a father living with Cerebral Palsy and how restaurants saved her life.
"The Inspired Word isn't just a series, it's a movement."
