The Inventor Of All Things

big word performance poetry—Planetarium

This is a nice change from Jem’s usual Performance Poetry show. He is known for his rapid fire, tongue tripping, verbal gymnastic rants. This time he chooses to slow down a tad and relate the true story of physicist Leo Szilard and other scientists of the time surrounding the atom bomb, and the development of the nuclear age. Of course, he manages to make this romp through history hilarious. The subject matter is already fascinating for anyone who cares about ones own and the earth’s survival. Jem just adds his own unique take on it and crafts it into a fascinating hour you will not regret, or forget. He will be selling out as usual, so get your tickets soon.
