Jamie DeWolf - Slam Poet. Film-Maker. Prankster. Playwright. Teacher. Raconteur. Anti-Hero. Once called a "verbal Ghenghis Kahnthe red-haired lovechild of a crack-crazed Richard Pryor and Alex from A Clockwork Orange", JAMIE DEWOLF is a slam poet, stand up comedian, teaching artist and filmmaker from Oakland, CA. After being banned from local open mics in his hometowns of Benicia and Vallejo for his raw subject matter, vaudevillian theatrics and dark humor, he created Tourettes Without Regrets in 1999 out of revenge, to showcase the cutting edge of undeground performance. Since then, the show has become the longest running freestyle battle and the largest slam on the West Coast. It was awarded the "Best of the Bay" by the SF Guardian and continues every first thursday of the month in Oakland, CA. DeWolf has characterized this show as "Sex, drugs and spoken word." The San Francisco Chronicle characterized DeWolf as "a nationally recognized slam poet"
