The fifth season of HBO’s Def Poetry Jam begins Friday, June 10 at 11:30.
Have you watched this show in past seasons? We usually have, and we’ve often got a lot to say about each performance. Starting this year, we are going to review the poets who appear in each week’s show in these pages, and we’d like to invite you to watch it and submit your comments as well.
Based on past experience, a typical half-hour of Def Poetry Jam will have at least one poet who’s great, one who’s boring and one who’s just plain terrible. Starting next weekend, let’s air it all out right here.
