I.N.K. brings the party to poetry! They are a poetry duo, whose live show involves fast paced, high energy, spoken word with a comedic twist. “The Penn And Teller Of Poetry” have taken their act to the National Poetry Slam, where they reached group finals and placed 6th in the nation. Biracial poet and event host, Courageous collaborated with Knoxville artist Lane Shuler and crafted a show that takes poetry, comedy, and hip-hop and blends it together into a rhythmic and energetic live show that is both educational, and entertaining. Topics they discuss include diversity, acceptance, body positivity, social justice, depression/suicide prevention, and more.
Since 2012, they have performed at colleges all over the country and have shared the stage with Russell Simmons, Saul Williams, Buddy Wakefield, G Yamazawa, and The Asia Project; and have been invited to appear on TV One’s Verses & Flow, GSN, HGTV, and Oprah Winfrey’s Oxygen Network. Due to their differing racial and life backgrounds, their entertaining perspectives on life are perfect for diversity events, emceeing, writing events, comedy nights, and more!
