George Watsky discovered the world of poetry when he was just 15 years old. He read his poems to the public, eventually becoming more and more popular. As part of the team of poets, he attended different contests and won several of them.
While writing his poems, Watsky talks about society and politics. When he was performing in 2006, George compared the behavior of the current politicians to that of a man trying to score points with a girl in a bar. As a result, he earned more points than any other comedian at the show. Later, George Watsky was invited to the Def Poetry Jam where he read his poem, V for Virgin.
The year 2006 was busy for Watsky. He was touring the country, performing at different contests. He earned several awards.
