“Let’s go see a poetry show.” That is a sentence rarely proclaimed and usually responded to with cringes and excuses. The Mayhem Poets are on a mission to change that. These theatre-trained and comedically gifted lyrical virtuosos seamlessly blend raw elements of hip-hop, theatre, improv and stand-up comedy to tell gut-wrenching truths, leaving audiences forever changed. Their unique approach to spoken word gives audiences a new appreciation for the power of well-chosen and well-spoken words.
