Nathan Comstock has been writing prose and poetry since high school, but he didn’t discover spoken word poetry until about three years ago when he moved to Boston from his home town of Indianapolis. From there, things spiraled out of control rather quickly. He is now a fixture at the Cantab’s open mic and has featured at such venues as Stone Soup, Rhythmic Cypher, and the Untitled Open Mic in Lowell, which he represented at the National Poetry Slam in 2013. Nathan offers up poetry that’s upbeat, funny, often geeky and often in formal verse, including what may well be the Cantab’s favorite-ever villanelles.
This show in our weekly Wednesday series takes place at the Cantab Lounge, 738 Massachusetts Ave. in Cambridge. Doors for the show open at 7:15. 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.
