Monkey Poet (Monkey Poet / PBH’s Free Fringe)

By | Published on Wednesday 14 August 2013

An hour with the Monkey Poet is like an evening at the pub with the friend we all wish we were cool enough to have. From pornography to David Cameron to St George, there is nothing immune to his intelligent, piercing mockery – and all of it done in rhyme! Exuding easy charm, the Manchester native and Fringe veteran maintains a friendly, informal atmosphere even while addressing the most provocative and relevant issues of the day in the rudest fashion possible. Not only is his poetry fresh and biting, but the stories that accompany them are often even more amusing, particularly when accents and impressions are involved. Irreverent, fast, furious, and fun, the Monkey Poet is not to be missed!

The Banshee Labyrinth, until 24 Aug (not 13, 20), 5.10pm.
