Join Kareem Parkins-Brown for this performance/poetry talk-show chronicling his years working in the hospitality industry.

It’s the job of long-suffering waiting staff, servers and cooks to be kind; serving and embodying kindness, with a smile on each and every shift. Or is it…?

I’m great with customers because I hate them.

Putting the ‘cuss dem’ in customer, through ingenious wordplay and graphic visuals, Kareem will expose a world of raging waiters, kind cooks, rude customers and gentrifying pop-ups that will have you laughing and might just make you reconsider how you behave in restaurants.

Kareem means kindness in Arabic, but I’m not.
