National Slam Poetry Team Performance
8 p.m. MacMillan 117, $2

Five members of Brown’s spoken word poetry group Word! are competing in a national competition for college poets in Boston next month. Just for all of you who want to see it without paying train fare, the team — Phil Kaye, Jamila Woods, Laura Brown-Lavoie, Kai Huang and Tim Natividad — will present their lineup for nationals here at Brown. These poets each have a unique style and have worked really hard to reach this point. Come early enough to get a seat and prepared to snap your fingers!

IMPROVidence’s 30 Hours of Improv
6 p.m.-2 a.m. Wilson 102 (and continuing tomorrow), $1

If you miss this performance, IMPROVidence will continue the show tomorrow (well, tonight?) from 2 a.m.-7 p.m. in MacMillan 117, moving to Wilson 102 from 7 p.m.-10 p.m. So if you really wanted to, you could watch improvisational comedy for a day straight, until your brain becomes so tired and oxygen-deprived from laughing that everything and everyone sounds funny to you.

Brownbrokers Mini-musical Festival
7 p.m. and 9:30 p.m. Production Workshop Downspace, free
