It's humour night at the ChiSeries! And boy, have we got some wacky folks reading for you. Hosted by Sandra Kasturi.

David Clink is a poet, poker player and punster. His poem, “Falling” was nominated for two awards: the Rhysling Award and the Aurora Award. His poem, “Copyright Notice 2525” placed second in the 2007 Asimov’s Reader’s Poll. David co-organizes with Sandra Kasturi “A Fistful of Poems,” a one-day poetry workshop, which has run 7 times. He has three collections of poetry: Eating Fruit Out of Season (2008); Monster (2010); and, Crouching Yak, Hidden Emu, (2012).

Troy Harkin is infamous for such poetry and prose as "Scalpers: Yonge + Carleton," "Home Sheep," "Bob's Dog Bob" and of course FUNERAL PANTS.

Jason Taniguchi bestrides the globe like a colossus. Mere mortals tremble at his coming. Look on his works, ye mighty, and despair. He is the one of whom the legends did speak. He is like unto a god! He is the alpha and the omega! He’s king of the world! He... is... your... destiny! Also, he writes funny little pieces once in a while and reads them aloud.

Kari Maaren is a ukelele supergenius. Check out her YouTube channel.
