A night of poetry, comedy and soft power with Derrick Brown & Amber Tamblyn. Veteran authors and performers  Derrick C. Brown and Amber Tamblyn are reuniting this spring for a limited run of their infamous literary performance  show, which they toured nationally between 2008-2015 via motorcycle.

PRETEND IT’S A BOAT combines sharply funny and heart-wrenching poetry, comedy, and wild interactions with the audience to create a truly inspired, one-ofa-kind show. Brown and Tamblyn have toured together for two decades, turning their signature style of darkly humorous and heart-jolting poetry and verse into provocative, energized and  unpredictable performances for the stage.
