Stand-up comedy: poetry's idiot relation, right? Performance poetry: comedy's boring cousin, yes? Let's find out. We're back from the Edinburgh Fringe 2016! We had an excellent time with sell-out shows and kick ass audiences. Photos and video to come. In the meantime...time for our next Brighton show! Six phenomenal acts go head to head for your approval as poetry and comedy collide with unexpected and hilarious results! Our resident team captains are joined by the most exciting comedy and poetry acts from around the UK. We're mashing up the two art forms in an epic battle of spoken word. Who wins? You decide... Team Comedy: Captain TBC, with James Harris ('sharp, smart, satirical' Axis) and Alasdair Beckett-King (WINNER: NATYS 2014, 'Delicious writing and exceptional observations' Chortle) Team Poetry: Captain Dan Simpson, with Brighton's own MC superstar Gramski and BBC Radio 2 / 4 / "Purely funny" (Fest) poet Daniel Piper 'witty, fast paced, and most importantly funny.' - Fringe Review 'This is a great show, showcasing some real talent.' - Three Weeks 'edgy, energetic comedy at its best. Far funnier than your average prime-time fare' - Sunday Express 'Stand Up And Slam' has done the rounds of late and it's clear to see why the likes of Edinburgh Fringe and Dave Leicester Comedy Festival, to name but a few, have hosted this fantastic show.' - BN1 Magazine
