In 2013, Houston-based College National Poetry Slam champion Neil Hilborn introduced the world to his raw emotional style and insightful, deeply moving poetry when a video of him performing a piece called OCD went viral. Amassing over 14 million views to date, the tear-jerking poem chronicled a lost love and how is obsessive compulsive disorder impacted it, opening up a frank national discussion about mental health disorders and creativity. Now a best-selling author and the most watched poet on the internet, Hilborn brings new material to the stage on the Endless Bummer Tour 2019.
Shining a light on coping with mental illness and how it affects every aspect of the sufferer's life, Hillborn struck a chord with many people. His debut full-length poetry collection 'Outnumbered Days', which includes his most popular works 'OCD', 'Joey', 'Future Tense' and 'Liminality', challenged his readers to question the works and themselves, using them as learning tools to discover more about themselves and the world around them.
Performance date: 1 November 2019
