Emily Duggan has studied creative writing, performance poetry, straight and applied theatre, and improv, sketch, and stand-up comedy at Brandeis University, GrubStreet, ImprovBoston, and The Second City— Chicago. Her day job is a night job as a Ghost Host (“dead for bread”) with Ghosts & Gravestones’ haunted trolley/burying-ground tour, where she is always working the graveyard shift, natch. Emily has spent 96% of her life (and all of her death) in the Greater Boston area, so, at the end of August, she will begin her candidacy for the MFA in Writing at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago.

The open mic begins at 8:00 and the feature performs at approximately 10:00. An open poetry slam in the 8×8 series will follow. The show is 18+ (ID required) and the cover charge is $3.
