Rod’s poetry has landed him on stages across America, but he has a tradition of doing shows in his home city to celebrate his birthday. On the Facebook page for ‘Mindblown’, Rod wrote: 

 “I am always trying to bring unique talent to my city for my birthday. I started doing a show rather than party for my birthday once a year and that show has grown to be once of the most unique events in Jacksonville. You’ve always been the right audience since my college days. This is also the only time to see me perform my full set. Sean Bott, I’ve known for about 5 years now and he’s grown to be even more amazing at his craft. His work is something amazing to see. I can’t wait for you to see him in action.

We move back to a theatre setting with this one! I’m very happy to announce that Theatre Jacksonville has opened their doors for this spectacular show!! I’ve already planned the afterparty for it within walking distance which will be free to all… Invite your family and friends. Get your tickets in advance to secure your seat at “The Little Theatre” and stay tuned!!”

Odd?Rod Borisade

Odd?Rod has long taken his poetry out of the academic and spoken word box, combining expert rhyme with sophisticated imagery that sets him apart from virtually every poet in the land. His delivery, evidenced by content on his YouTube channel,  is mesmerizing.

Bott’s website suggests his audiences never know what to expect as he presents “ innovative and distinct comedy mind reading”, leading The L.A. Times to describe him as a crazy mix between Jack Black and Criss Angel. Amazing!”

Soul-pop tunes by Radio Love will round out the super show.

Tickets are available at squareup.com, with the event listed as Odd?Rod’s 4th Annual Birthday Show
