Come out and enjoy 3-time world champion performance poet Buddy Wakefield’s only NYC tour stop this year.
The first author released on Write Bloody Publishing and the most toured spoken word artist in history, Wakefield delivers raw rounded, disarming performances of humor and heart.
Wakefield is a three-time world champion spoken word artist featured on the BBC, HBO’s Def Poetry Jam, and ABC Radio National. He has been signed to both Sage Francis’ Strange Famous Records as well as Ani DiFranco’s Righteous Babe Records. In 2004 he won the Individual World Poetry Slam Finals thanks to the support of anthropologist and producer Norman Lear then went on to share the stage with nearly every notable performance poet in the world in over 2000 venues internationally from The Great Lawn of Central Park, Zimbabwe’s Shoko Festival and Scotland’s Oran Mor to San Quentin State Penitentiary, House of Blues New Orleans and The Basement in Sydney, Australia.
