It is double also the first heat in this year’s ACT Australian Poetry Slam championships.
The winners will be sent to the ACT finals, the winners of the ACT finals will be sent to National Finals in Sydney, the winners of the National finals in Sydney will be sent EVERYWHERE.
Also because BAD!SLAM!NO!BISCUIT! is BAD!SLAM!NO!BISCUIT! we don’t just have people competing for fame and fortune with poetry. We also have them competing for broken toys by completing the Master of Conflict’s challenges.
We also have more first prizes than any other poetry slam ever.
We are also the longest running only poetry slam ever, and both the first and the latest poetry slams ever, and whatever else we may decide to claim ever.
BAD!SLAM!NO!BISCUIT! also has special guest stars!
These are they:
Ell Bella is a Melbourne based MC, street performer, juggler and acrobat. Her solo street shows have taken her around the world and around her home country of Australia. She regularly MC’s at Melbourne’s ‘Variety Collective’, and in her own show Ell Bella’s Late Night Variety Assortment, as well as in a number of one-off events. As a corporate juggler she is one of Australia’s finest, performing solo or with other circus artists.
Bella and Bela are pronounced differently.
