Buddy Wakefield: Riled Up and Wasted on Light
In Scranton for one night only, at TwentyFiveEight Studios! Wakefield is a true inspiration as a poet and as a human being.
Spoken-word artist Buddy Wakefield is back! The three-time spoken world champion is spending Valentine's Day in the Northeast. Who needs "Fifty Shades of Grey" when you have Buddy Wakefield this Valentine's Day!
Wakefield baptizes failure into fireworks and promises to drop jaws and warm hearts. He "documents the figurative contents of a man's body attempting to stand firm in the presence of all that is."
"Buddy Wakefield is one of the most beloved and respected figures in the Poetry Slam scene... Earned through hard work, through his bright and beautiful spirit and by harnessing and sharpening a talent so boundless, audiences can't help but gasp." -- Cristin O'Keefe Aptowicz, Everything is Everything
Wakefield is a two-time Individual World Poetry Slam Champ, has been featured on NPR, the BBC, HBO's Def Poetry Jam, and recently signed to Ani DiFranco's Righteous Babe Records. He tours full time and considers annual Poetry Revival tours with Derrick Brown and Anis Mojgani, and separate tours with Ani DiFranco, to be the highlight of his career. Buddy has been a busker in Amsterdam, a lumberjack in Norway, a street vendor in Spain, a team leader in Singapore, a re-delivery boy, a candy maker, a street sweeper, a bartender, a maid, a construction worker, a bull rider and a triathlete.
