Has an Open Mic?
Randall and Smarty are at it again. In fact they’ve never really stopped being at it. Attempting to arrest your attention with words. Poetry for people to enjoy. It’s a concept they believe in with some vigour.
Damned for being entertaining seems like a strange concept in a society that is prepared to be entertained by damn near anything. Perhaps if they were sitting in a room with a camera whining that their souffles didn’t set the way they hoped or that some faceless minion hadn’t restocked their free beer fridge… So they’re gonna take their frustrations out on the microphone and stick it where it fits – right in your ear!
Their shows have been described as dynamic and hilarious, full of movement and colourful language (swearing). Come see what the fuss has been about from Perth to Preston and several other places that don’t begin with ‘P’. Poetry, garn getitinya.”
