MADx Lineup Fri 14th July 2017

The MADx Collective brings you…

MC Seema
Mistress of Ceremonies, MC Seema.

Mistress Seema likes to be pleased:
Happy Seema = Happy MADx.
Just so you know.

 

Jenny 

Regardless of your opinions about the quality of Jenny’s writing, yelling “don’t quit your day job” at her is no use since that ship has already sailed.

Jenny will bring some good old sh#t and some stonk-honkin’ new sh#t.

 

 

Richard Sitosky

Richard reckons owning your shit means grabbing life by the knards and not letting the bastards grind you down, and will explore the principle that success is the best revenge – or, when life hands you lemons, make a gin and tonic!

Mad poet from the hick town of Owen Sound, where masculinity is in inverse proportion to the size of your truck.

And if you buy a copy of his CD he might just be able to make the bus fare to get home.

 

Asante
Asante loves loves MADx – because he gets to hold the mic – which keeps his hands busy.

Asante will be bringing new material, and a surprise for MC Seema…
Follow him on Twitter…  @AsanteV

 

Fan Wu
Fan Wu is a writer and unapologetic fantasist living in Toronto.

 

 

 

Tim n Ben
One year ago Tim took to the MADx stage and did the Mad Pride Rant: show up, free hugs, food. Last MADx Ben told stories about vampires and friends. This time they’re back, and together, as some kinda mad rantin’ dancin’ double act with a bite.

 

 

K for Kevin
K always found it curious that people with x in their name seemed cool.

He doesn’t – so he isn’t. But he does have a while head full of “muppets” and they can be.

Dan Rosen
Throughout high school and university, I tried every major form of religion I could find, but could never figure them out until, finally, after my search was long over, I found my answer in a handful of psilocybin mushrooms.

A storyteller-filmmaker-comedian and one half of the frenetic improv duo Flux In A Box, who have a Toronto Fringe show this July called Roommate Agreements at the Factory Theatre studio theatre.

I also host a monthly comedy show at Comedy Bar called Opening Act Dan Rosen.

Jenny
Jenny is a hardworking, energetic, creative, philosophical, anarcha-feminist, queer, pagan, bohemian.

She has been living in Toronto since 2010 and organized Mad Pride from 2012-2015.

.

Ben B
A Romanian vampire once told Ben that there are too many books to read to even consider sleeping.

In daylight hours he sabotages his own vital role in the global financial system by writing short prose and reading leftist propaganda.


K for Kevin
Kevin always found it curious that people with x in their name seemed cool.
He doesn’t – so he isn’t.

Asante
Asante loves the mic and dreams of how, one day, the mic will love him too.

Asante also loves MADx – because he gets to hold the mic – and we love him too because he always finds a way to do the both the right thing and the other things he wants to do.
