Monday August 13th! Comic WES HAZZARD from Boston! Plus! Iron Poet Qualifier!

FEATURED ARTIST: A New England native, WES HAZARD has been named as one of “5 Boston Comedians to Watch” by The Boston Globe Magazine. A writer and storyteller as well as comedian, Wes brings wit, energy and honesty to the stage, qualities that have made him a regular performer in Boston venues as well as at The Boston Comedy Festival and The Women in Comedy Festival. Wes is a multiple-time winner on The Moth StorySLAM stage and he’s appeared as a guest on the Comedy Bang! Bang! Live! podcast and The Story Collider podcast. His debut humor book Questions For Terrible People was published by Simon & Schuster in 2016, and in 2017 he was awarded a New England Emmy for his hosting work on CBS Boston’s The Secret Worlds of Boston Comic Con. He currently co-hosts the national storytelling television program Stories From The Stage on PBS and in 2018 he appeared on Jeopardy!, becoming a 3-time champion.

BONUS RUCKUS: IRON POET QUALIFIER – we’re looking for two DG regulars who’d like a shot at taking the title away from current champ ASHLEY WONDER next month! We present the secret ingredient at the start of the show to two challengers. You’ll have approximately one hour to whip up an original haiku, short free form poem and incorporate ingredient into something you’ve done on our stage before! We’ll compete at half time of the show and hand the winner a bunch of glory along with their title shot!

Congrats to NARK, ADRIANA, VOID & GAB on qualifying for FEMS SLAM finals. August 20th will be our next and least open slam where 4 feminite identified folks will earn an opportunity to represent the Dirty Gerund at the 2018 FEMS Slam Festival in Cambridge! Join us for open mic, music, live art and all the rest this Monday! (weather permitting we’re outside all summer!)
