A Writer's Night Chris O’Carroll

A Writer's Night Chris O’CarrollStraw Dog Writers’ Guild and the Longmeadow Adult Center present poet, actor, comedian, Chris O’Carroll, Thursday, October 20 from 6:45-7:45pm.

Chris was a virtually unknown stand-up comic in the year 2000 when he self-published Take These Rhymes . . Please: Rude Limericks and Other Crimes Against Literature and began hawking that volume after the show at comedy clubs. From toking on limericks, it was a short step to mainlining sonnets, and he quickly became a virtually unknown poet. Chris has been Light magazine’s featured poet, and his work also appears in New York City Haiku, Love Affairs at the Villa Nelle, Extreme Sonnets, and The Great American Wise Ass Poetry Anthology, among other collections.  He is the author of two books of poems, The Joke’s on Me and Abracadabratude. He is also a member of Actors Equity, whose favorite stage roles have included Frank in Educating Rita, Friar Lawrence in Romeo and Juliet, Scrooge in A Christmas Carol, and Eeyore in Winnie the Pooh.

Longmeadow Adult Center is located at 231 Maple Road. Admission is free.
