This April, the Encyclopedia Show AZ will take a journey through time and space to explore the mysteries of Mesopotamia. Some call it the cradle of civilization, some call it Iraq and Syria, some may only remember the Tigris and Euphrates rivers from the geography class. Our semi-educational age-integrated variety-infotainment show starts at 7:30 pm on April 10 at the Empty Space Theater in Tempe, Arizona. As always the show is free and all are welcome.

Railroads – February 27

Railroads Poster

The Encyclopedia Show AZ is turning 4 on Monday February 27. If the Encyclopedia Show AZ was a human, it would be stumbling around, annoyingly asking everyone “Why?” all the time. Turns out, thats exactly what we do anyway but with a stage, an audience, and a concept. This month, our topic is Railroads! As always the show is free and will feature a variety of semi-educational performances from the community’s poets, performers, musicians, etc. This train is pulling out of the station promptly(ish) at 7:30pm. Heres to four more years of Encyclopedia Show AZ! Everybody with me now: FOUR MORE YEARS! FOUR MORE YEARS! FOUR MORE YEARS!

Performer Spotlight: Kevin M. Flanagan


Kevin Flanagan is a writer, performer, and artist living in Phoenix, Arizona.

When Kevin was three years old, he pushed a sheet metal screw up his nose. It was there for some time before being discovered, and required a trip to the emergency room to remove.

This is Kevin’s earliest memory.
