Art Kumbalek, circa 1992

Sermon of the Mouth is an audio version of some of Dan Hanrahan's most energetic performance poetry pieces from the early 1990's. Working with director and producer Dave O'Meara, Dan collected some of his best pieces into a one-man show, called Sermon of the Mouth, which helped inaugurate the Late Night Series at Milwaukee's Theatre X. The audio version was released by OT!OM! in 1994.

After more than a decade in Chicago, Dan Hanrahan is currently living and working in Baltimore. For what he's up to recently, try here or here or here.
