NYC Open Mic Joint w/Host Nathan P. @ The Nuyorican Poets Café - Tuesday, Jan. 3
The first Tuesday night of every month, Mike Geffner Presents The Inspired Word and the famed Nuyorican Poets Café in Manhattan’s East Village join forces to present the NYC Open Mic Joint, hosted by former Nuyorican Slam Master Nathan P.
The Inspired Word’s NYC Open Mic Joint marks the long-awaited return of Nuyorican Poets Café legend Nathan P. as host, instantly separating it from any other open mic in the Big Apple.
Known back in the day with great reverence as the Slam Master, as well as the sharpet dresser in spoken word, Nathan P. hosted either the Wednesday or Friday night slam at the Nuyo from 2000 to 2007, introducing audiences to the likes of such up-and-comers as Oveous Maximus and Carlos Andrés Gómez.
Now, coming out of hosting retirement but still with funky cool fedoras, sharp-looking pinstriped suits, and one-of-a-kind cufflinks, he brings a special class and style to a special kind of open mic. As Nathan P. will tell you before every show, “The Open Mic Joint isn’t your father’s open mic. Noooooooooo. Trust me, it’s not like any other open mic you’ve ever seen before.”
And once you experience it for a single night, you’ll see for yourself. Be forewarned: The vibe is totally addictive.
It’s open to all types of artists - comedians, musicians, storytellers, singers, poets, fiction/nonfiction writers, playwrights, spoken word artists, performance artists, dancers, ANYTHING and EVERYTHING.
So, if you’re looking for a cool downtown spot to do your thing, this is definitely the place.
All you have to do is bring the talent, we’ll bring the rest.
