Get your double-dose of Johns this Saturday! First up, Bernician John Rice. John is a poet, a witster, and a food aficionado The picture of him below is what I can only assume mid-John Weir impersonation. Or maybe it’s a Bela Lugosi impersonation? Only one way to find out: Show up on Saturday and ask him to do his John Weir-Bela Lugosi impersonation.
John Rice is as tall as a human-sized tree. (A tree that eats sandwiches and reads books.) He has an MFA from Queens College, concentrating on poetry and mayonnaise. He is the former recipient of the Silverstein-Peiser and James Kreuzer awards, and, in 2011, was a featured reader in both the Queens and Brooklyn College’s Summer Festival of the Performing Arts. He is available for bachelorette parties and Bar Mitzvahs.
