Stay in the loop with the Windy City’s biggest news. WBEZ Chicago
If you watch any shows set in Chicago, you’ve probably seen LaRoyce Hawkins. He plays Kevin Atwater in “Chicago P.D.” and its many crossover shows and is in “South Side” as Michael “Shaw” Owens. Even if Hawkins hasn’t appeared on your TV, you might’ve seen him around town. He’s the tall guy with the toothpick, coordinating fundraisers for community organizations in and around Chicago.
But he’s also a lifelong poet and comedian, and currently touring his show “Poetry OVER Prose.”
In this episode, we talk to Hawkins about poetry, improv and unicycles.
