Tonight six acts will go up against each other in a lively collision of comedy and spoken word poetry. Komedia’s event aims to marry comedy and poetry, dispelling preconceptions about haughty, po-faced poets and creating a bubbly and welcoming atmosphere filled with laughs. Audience participation is highly encouraged and your support will determine who finally walks away with the prize.
The show received great praise from the Leicester Comedy Festival and the Edinburgh Fringe, and is highly recommended for those who might like to dip their toe in the world of spoken word without committing to an entirely serious night of sobering poetry. Whether you are a fan of poetry or comedy, ‘Stand Up & Slam’ promises a good few laughs and some genuine talent.
“The result – well, it was decided by audience participation. But it didn’t really matter – the audience were the winners.” – The Public Reviews
“This is a great show, showcasing some real talent” – Three Weeks
The event begins at 8pm and doors open at 7:30pm
