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.
They have performed at colleges all over the country and have shared the stage with Russell Simmons, Carlos Andres Gomez, and The Asia Project. They have been invited to appear on TV One’s Verses & Flow, GSN, HGTV, HLN, and Oprah Winfrey’s Oxygen Network. Their differing racial and life backgrounds lend to their entertaining perspectives on life, and they are perfect for diversity events, emceeing, poetry/writing nights, comedy nights, and more!
