    I don't think there's much of a spoken word scene here, although that would definitely be cool!

    Which Language?

    I remember some local friends going on a standup-comedy/poetry slam kind of thing on a monday night one. But that was 95% Cantonese, I didn't bother to join...

    If you speak Canto I can ask them about the details.
