Also included, excerpts from her autobiographical play, Death By Sparkle: Or, What Happens When You Drink Window Cleaner, and monologues from her inappropriately hilarious alter ego, Princess Kratilda.

Barbie’s original artwork, prints, and upcycle creations were available at the event. Roasting Questions was not available for sale at this event, but will be sold by Malaprop’s Bookstore at The Hop Ice Cream “author event” on Saturday, April 6th from 2-4pm.

Thank you, Asheville!

Lots of love and many thanks to those of you who voted for me as a Mountain Xpress “Best of WNC” poet for the FIFTH year in a row. I cannot tell you how honored I was to be named the Number One poet…. My reign is almost over, with voting going on again right now, but I want you all to know how deeply moved I was that so many of you enjoy what I do as a poet and performer.
I had hoped to give each of you a kiss….but I’m afraid I don’t have that much Dr. Pepper chapstick.

“Barbie Angell Uncensored” is a dazzling fusion
of poetry, comedy and tragedy

ASHEVILLE NC – Poet, playwright and raconteur Barbie Angell performs “Barbie Angell Uncensored: An Unfiltered, Uninhibited and Unapologetic Event” at 8pm Wednesday, March 27, 2024, at LaZoom Bar & Gorilla. The 90-minute show is a melange of works spanning Angell’s career, including her poetry, excerpts from her autobiographical play “Death by Sparkle,” pieces from her children’s book “Roasting Questions,” and rarely performed mature works.

A multitalented, multi-hyphenate personality based in Asheville since 1999, the always colorful Angell is recognized around town for her work as a poet, playwright, columnist, emcee, artist and fashion designer. She has been voted “Best of WNC” poet by Mountain XPress readers for 10 consecutive years, and her skills as an emcee have made her a sought-after host for local festivals and large events such as Planned Parenthood’s Condom Couture and the Reproductive Rights Rally. 

Angell has written sketch comedy, co-authored “The Kids Show: Definitely Not for Kids,” and penned one act of “Grimm’s Fairy Tales” for Montford Park Player. She is currently creating and selling upcycled clothing in her own fun and funky signature style – some of which will be available for sale at the event, along with original artwork and prints.

Equal parts stand-up comedy, poetry slam and public confession booth, “Barbie Angell Uncensored” promises to be emotional, unsettling, hilarious, and as unique as Barbie Angell herself!

Tickets are available at for a suggested donation of $20.
