"Dauchan is funny, polished, political, reflective, and surprising: everything a poet should be in the 21st century."
-Taylor Mali: 4-time National Poetry Slam Team Champion
- Taylor Mali


"Darian Dauchan begins with probably the most important onstage skill - the ability to be absolutely and utterly believed at all times. To this he adds a
brash and well thought-out political understanding that rivets the listener, that holds us (whether or not we agree with his viewpoints) in thrall. Further, his sense of humor is engaging enough as to make him
affable, draw in his listeners and infect them with art. He is well worth the price of admission."
-Roger Bonair-Agard :Two-Time National Slam Champion
and co-founder of The louderARTS Project
- Roger Bonair-Agard


"Darian Dauchan is an absolute marvel on the stage: smart, powerful and fearless. Dauchan is one of those
rare poets who can have you doubled-over in laughter one moment, and in awestruck to silence the next. I'm always excited to see what he does next. "
-Cristin O'Keefe Aptowicz:Founder of the three-time National Poetry Slam Championship venue, NYC-Urbana,
and author of the forthcoming book, "Words In Your Face: A Guided Tour through Twenty Years of the New
York City Poetry Slam" (Soft Skull Press) - Cristin O'Keefe Aptowicz


"Darian Dauchan's ability to commit to the writing and performance of poetry is classic in its social timing and manipulates the audience's
hunger for more self less and aware artists."
- Mahogany L. Browne, Owner of PoetCD.com, Publisher & Slammistress of The Nuyorican Poets Cafe - Mahogany L. Browne of PoetCD.com,
