The C&K Street Series features Commoners and Kings performing impromptu spoken word poems on the streets of Southern California. This episode I meet a poet who has helped to grow spoken word poetry to what it is today. He is dynamic and entertaining and quite possibly the reason you started performing, SHIHAN, who also featured on HBO’s Def Poetry Jam, is a National Slam Champion, featured on ads and TV shows and tours full time. He makes sure he is Episode #33 in honor of the great, PATRICK EWING, a fitting tribute to his Knicks and NYC.

He also runs Da Poetry Lounge, the largest weekly open mic in the country, located at

The Greenway Court Theater
544 N. Fairfax Blvd.
Los Angeles, CA 90036

Every Tuesday night @9pm (early arrival strongly suggested)

He shares a personal piece called THE FREE WRITE about his family.
