First Time Dave
Dave is the Reading Poetry Slam’s most winningest (it’s a word) poet, and is a previous Archimedes Screw Showcase champion. He mixes the serious and the silly, the personal and the political, and is continually amazed when people pay him to read poetry. Result! He’s cycling around the country on this tour in honor of his good friend Lizzie Lee who passed away last year.
Local Favourite the multi talented Ricky Tart runs Tricky Art, an education based project organisation, using poetry, film, music and art to engage learners. He has published a book of narrative poetry called ‘Crockodogopig’, which follows Ned Crockodogopig and his friend Darren Hippopotomouse as they confront the evil, thieving Gerald Kangalouse.
He has supported Boothby Graffoe, been employed by Richard O’Brien, played successful runs at the Edinburgh Festival and has recently debuted his scratch show ‘I Read The News’ which he is planning to tour around the UK.
Southampton’s poetry legend Stewart is also an Archimedes Screw Showcase champion, the Hammer and Tongue Oxford champion 2013 and a National Slam finalist 2014. expect quirky wit and theatricality from the wordmeat pieman. Come nibble his wares. Mmmm, tasty! (Apologies to vegetarians.)
Open Mike – come share your words on the night – limited spaces.
