Facebook brings word of returning mayhem:
THIS IS THE BAD!SLAM!NO!BISCUIT! MAY 2012 SPECIAL EDITION INVITATION
That means, prizes, yes, prizes, for poetry, special prizes for poetry
And The Batman
Because we want you onstage with your 2 minutes, your original material, and your no props
ALL SO YOU CAN WIN AT LEAST ONE OF OUR THREE, FOUR, MAYBE FIVE FIRST PRIZES
You are The Batman
Now in the interests of keeping this succinct this invitation will tell you about prizes
Yes, prizes, if you win we won’t send you to perform for some totalitarian regime, but that’s okay
Be The Batman
No, instead we give you special prizes, maybe things from SOMEONE’S BACKYARD, maybe things broken in IMPACT COMICS, maybe things no person wants to buy in MIND GAMES, maybe something free that they can’t sell at SMITHS ALTERNATIVE BOOKSHOP, and maybe a tasty bbq’ed thing from GORMAN HOUSE MARKETS, who knows?
BUT IT IS ALL ABOUT NOT COMPROMISING YOU
Just ask The Batman
So typically these invitations are verbose, extended, drawn out and non-sensible or nonsensical, but because this month is a very special month the invite is not any of those things, no
Being not that, it, this invitation, is now going to tell you about the feature acts
This month we have two feature acts, YES TWO
Not The Batman.
We have the SONGTRON 8000
“SONGTRON 8000 appears as the Emperor SONGTRON 8000 in Remembrance of the SONGTRON 8000s, with his white and gold SONGTRON 8000s now based on Skaro and termed “Imperial SONGTRON 8000s”, fighting against the grey “Renegade SONGTRON 8000” faction. By this time, SONGTRON 8000 has been physically transplanted into a customised SONGTRON 8000 casing. Both Skaro and the Imperial SONGTRON 8000 mothership are apparently destroyed when the Seventh Doctor tricks SONGTRON 8000 into using the Time Lord artefact known as the Hand of Omega. However, a SONGTRON 8000 on the bridge of SONGTRON 8000’s ship reports that the Emperor’s escape pod is being launched and a white light is seen speeding away from the ship moments before its destruction, leaving a clear route to bring SONGTRON 8000 back in the future.”
AND WE HAVE.
She is the Batman
But not to be outdone by bringing the age old enemy of the Doctor to BAD!SLAM!NO!BISCUIT!
We also have ARCHIE (aka Robin Archbold)
“Robin Archbold has been variously described as electrifying, heartbreaking, wonderfully romantic, hilarious and inspirational, and is the only performer ever to have won the Woodford Poetry Slam and the Woodford Storytelling Award. Equally at home at outback poets’ breakfasts, late-night burlesque bars in the cities or the main stage at the Sydney Theatre Company, he can entertain and move your mum, or the boffins at the biggest poetry festivals in the country. He’s a multi-slam winner, multi-festival feature performer and workshop presenter extraordinaire. You never know where the ride will take you, and you won’t care.”
YES, that is correct, both ROBIN ARCHBOLD (aka ARCHIE) and the SONGTON 8000
We are The Batman
So join The Master of Conflict, JACINTA, The Score Adder, Andrew Galan and The Sacrificial Poet at the Phoenix for a 730pm signup for your original words with no props or music on stage for two whole minutes to win prizes, prizes, prizes
THIS IS SPECIAL
Listen to The Batman.
