Bucky Sinister

When: Sun., May 20, 5-8 p.m. 2012

Reading (or hearing) Bucky Sinister's poetry and stand-up comedy is kind of like reading your funniest friend's diary: Intensely personal, sometimes blisteringly ripped-open, and yet somehow still hilarious. It's fitting that Sinister, a longtime Bay Area personality, must be one of the few poets in the universe who also dabbles -- successfully -- in careers as a comic and as a self-help author. He reads from his latest collection, Time Bomb Snooze Alarm, at Issues (20 Glen Ave., Oakland) on Sunday, May 20. 5 p.m., free. 510-652-5700 or
