Opener: 

DEFINITION OF KNOWLEDGE 

Definition Of Knowledge is a high energy satirical take on slam poetry. Using this form, we take aim at issues surrounding gender and race in a way that is both high minded and incredibly silly. Starting as an offshoot of troupe "The Boom", Definition Of Knowledge has been performing for several years. We've performed for capacity crowds at Second City Theater, The Drake Hotel, and UCB Franklin in Los Angeles. We've performed in the Guelph Comedy Festival, Atlantic Fringe Festival and North By Northeast. We've performed with Scott Thompson, Colin Mochrie and the Sklar Brothers.
