Hailed as a âtruth-telling visionaryâ by Brass Magazine and a âlyrical prophetâ by the Caymanian Compass, CARLOS ANDRÉS GÓMEZ is a leading voice at the vanguard of the oral poetry movement. The iconic slam poet, actor, and playwright is a Russell Simmonsâ HBO Def Poet and 2006 International Poetry Slam Champion. A proud Latino and native New Yorker, Carlos co-stars in Spike Leeâs #1 blockbuster smash hit film âINSIDE MANâ with a leading role alongside Denzel Washington, Jodie Foster, and Clive Owen.
Called a âmust-seeâ and given five out of five stars by Hairline Magazine in England, he has performed at over 100 colleges and universities and toured across North America, Europe, the Caribbean, and Africa. His work has appeared in numerous publications, including High Desert Voices (The Wordsmith Press, 2006), The New York Times, Rattle: Poetry for the 21st Century (Scarecrow Press, 2007), AWOL Magazine, Speakeasy Anthology (University of Pennsylvania, 2002), Legendary Anthology: Stories We Tell Today, Stories Our Children Will Tell Tomorrow (Sacred Fools Press, 2008), Timeout New York, and the forthcoming Barbershop Chronicles.
Carlos won a Rocky Mountain Emmy® Award for his starring role in the groundbreaking âRespect Yourselfâ television spots. His first poetry CD was named Spoken Word Album of the Year at the 2006 L.A. Music Awards. Always seeking to push artistic boundaries, Carlos recently collaborated with Tony Award-winning tap dance legend Savion Glover at The Town Hall on Broadway. Their much lauded performance, featured as part of the Nuyorican Poets Caféâs âAloud and Alive at 35â anniversary show, received a standing ovation from the sold-out audience.
A former social worker and teacher in Harlem, the South Bronx and Philadelphia, Carlos regularly conducts workshops and lectures on critical social and political issues. Youth empowerment, the fight against HIV/AIDS, and the unjust penal system in the United States remain central to his lifeâs work.
Carlos just wrapped his 26 date REBEL WITH A CAUSE NATIONAL TOUR, a year-long campaign that visited colleges and universities across the United States . He is a Creative Producer and Mentor of the groundbreaking new documentary film MYTH OF THE MOTHERLAND, which will follow young writers/poets as they embark on a creative writing journey through diverse African countries to meet with African scholars, writers, griots, artists, and others to address myths and biases about the Mother Continent. Coinciding with filming scheduled to take place in August/September, Gómez will travel to Rwanda and Sudan to also begin research for a new one-man play called âA World Without Fathers.â He was just awarded a 2008 HARLEM STAGE Fund for New Work Grant to write and develop the new piece.

â Mindy Nettifee, Ism Quarterly (United States)
âCarlos Andrés Gómez is the voice of a nationâ¦[He] proves that there are always men fighting in the underground creating a war. A war of words. A war of spirit. A conscious war.â
â Martin Hamelin, Le Monde ( France )
âCarlos Andrés Gómez terrorizes a microphone with a rapid fire abandonâ¦Some people write poetry. Yet others act like poets. Beyond them are the toilers, the true artisans of the word. This is the rarest breed.â
â Emanuel Jalonschi, Beyond Race Magazine (United States)
âCarlos Andrés Gómez is the new New Yorker super poet and top spoken word star.â
â Rayl Patzak, Claudio de das Hörportal ( Germany )
âCarlosâ words dug deep into the audienceâs souls. His words were so elegantly strung together with puns and metaphor.â
â Gabrielle Kappes, Wheaton Wire ( United States )
âPowerfully raw yet breathtakingly intimate poemsâ¦a poetry slam star.â
â Andrew Z. Galarneau, The Buffalo News ( United States )
âGómezâs performance is part classic artiste and part lyrical prophet. Think Keats, meets Bob Marley meets Tupac Shakur.â
â Searlina Bodden, Caymanian Compass ( Cayman Islands )
