Five Local Artists Totally Destroy Published Books At Say Wha?! Show

unnamed

Like my clickbait headline? Sorry, I had to do it. I’m just so excited to tell you about the awesome Say Wha?! show I produced last week.

The show featured: Emma Cooper! TJ Dawe! LeeAnn Kepel! AND Eric Fell! (Oh yeah, me too.)

A student from Langara College was there on an assignment to report on the event. She nicely summarized the show and wrote about who read which book –  but before you clink on the link, can you guess who read what?

Have you read any of these books? Let me know what you thought about them in the comments.

Say Wha?! Recap September’s Show

Say Wha Emerald

Well, this is long overdue.

The last Say Wha?! show was back at the end of September and these funny people read the following books.

Sara Bynoe – Modelland by Tyra Banks

Lauren McGibbon – The Steam Punk Bible

Cameron Macleod – Single No More: How and Where To Meet The Perfect Mate

Nicole Passmore- Getting Along with Chinese for Fun and Profit

Chip Ellis – The Very Hungry Caterpillar

I’ve been under a rock lately but I’m starting to crawl out of it. More Say Wha?! shows are happening in December. Check my calendar for full details. Thanks to those of you who’ve noticed that the podcast hasn’t been updated, it also fell off the wagon. I’m getting back to it soon.

Vancouver, I’m back! Let’s have some fun

Hey Vancouver, I’m back in your fair city. You thought I was gone forever, didn’t you? Well, not quite. Don’t write me off.

I’m back figuring out ma shite and while I’m doing that I’m going to do what I love the most – putting on shows! I hope to see you there. If not, I’ll probably pack up my bags and leave you again. That’s how Canada works, right? You’re never something until you’re something somewhere else.

Teen Angst Facebook Event Emerald

TEEN ANGST NIGHT

Tuesday, September 23
The Emerald, 555 Gore Street, Vancouver
$10. Eventbrite. Please purchase in advance to avoid disappointment.
Facebook Event

Somewhere in the back of your closet gathering dust and turning yellow with age is comedic gold. Those old journals, poems, and essays you wrote as a teenager when you thought you could do no wrong, would probably make you cringe at your former feelings if you were to read them today. Now, imagine sharing them in front of an audience. That’s exactly what happens at Teen Angst Night.

Teen Angst Night is a comedic reading series, hosted and produced by Sara Bynoe since 2000, where everyday people read from their embarrassing old journals, poems, songs, essays (and more).

You can share anything (poetry, songs, letters, journals, diaries, essays, stories, plays, lists, etc) so long as it follows these rules:

1- The work must be your own.
2- You must have written it between the ages of 10-19.
3- It’s best if the work is at least 4 years old.
4- If you cringe or feel physically upset while reading it- it’s worth sharing! The more embarrassing the better!

Sorry, reader spots are full. Another event will happen again soon. Get in touch if you want to be involved.
