2 Wyckoff Ave, Brooklyn, New York 11237
Welcome to a unique and immersive poetry event that takes poetry outside classrooms and lecture halls and places it in the lush interiors of a bordello. The Madame presents a rotating cast of poets, each operating within a carefully crafted character, who impart their work in public readings, spontaneous eruptions of poetry, and most distinctly, as purveyors of private poetry readings on beds, chaise lounges and in private rooms. For a small fee, all of the poets are available for these sequestered readings at any time during the event. Of course, any true bordello need a good cover; ours is an immersive cabaret featuring burlesque, live music, vaudeville, aerials, visual art, magic, mysticism, with newly integrated themes, performances and installations at each event.

This Holiday season The Poetry Brothel is bringing back its Old Timey Office Holiday Party! That's right, we're gonna throw the photocopier up on the stage, and if you don't get your ass up there and sing a carol young man… This event will feature house band the Hot Club of Flatbush, aerialists The Lost Boys, burlesque dancers Cassandra Rosebeetle, Mademoiselle Estelle, & Puss N Boots, performance artist Jessy Smith, sketchy sketch artist Too Loose, palm reader & jewelry maker Holy Crow, a slew of poetry whores, and, as always, your hosts The Madame, Mister Charley, and Tennessee Pink

Doors open at 8pm; show starts at 9pm. Themed costumes and/or formalwear are encouraged but not required. This event is 21+.
