Brisbane’s most celebrity-endorsed open mic event is back this September, and this month we are celebrating the phenomenon of doppelgängery!

That’s right, this month’s poetry slam will be chockablock full of celebrities who will travel from all over the world, and all throughout history, just to appear for one night only in a modestly-sized Brissy live music venue to drink and heckle.

What is a poetry slam? It’s an open mic competition where you get 2 mins on the mic to show us your stuff. Poem/rap/shopping list whatever you want.

Come dressed as your doppelgänger for the opportunity to win a coveted audience prize, or bring a poem and compete in the running for our Ruckus Grand Final!

18+ only
$10 online, $15 on the door

Doors and open mic sign-up at 6:30pm
7:00pm SHARP kick-off
2 min time limit, sing-off at 2min30

The night will be hosted by legendary Australian comedian Celia Pacquola.*
