Product Description

Based on a Tony-winning Broadway production, {#Def Poetry Jam} was the brainchild of {$Russell Simmons}, the same man responsible for {@HBO}'s improvisational ethnic {comedy} series {#Def Comedy Jam}. Hosted by rapper {$Mos Def}, {#Def Poetry Jam} was taped live at {~The Supper Club} in New York. A vast array of performance artists, ranging from poets to actors to musicians to comedians, most but not all African-American, were given full license to express themselves in the most emotional, uninhibited, and sometimes obscene manner possible before a large and enthusiastic live audience. Sometimes the poetry was presented "straight," without adornment; and sometimes the recitations were part and parcel of a mixed-media presentation. Hilarious, biting, profane, tender, offensive, but never dull, the series was an expert encapsulation of the feelings and sensitivities of minority artists in post-9/11 America. Also known as {#Russell Simmons Presents: Def Poetry}, the half-hour {#Def Poetry Jam} made its {@HBO} bow in June of 2002. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi
