Archive : The Anti Poet


SoapBox presents... WORDS & VERSES A brand new night of the most exciting spoken word on the UK scene. Expect poetry, rap, improvisation, live musicial accompaniment, open mic, beat boxers and vocal linguistics, all held together with a huge dash of comedy. THE ANTI POET Paul and Ian have brought together the wit and wisdom of one of the countries finest performance poets with melodic rhythms of solo bass and the odd piece of gratuitous percussion thrown in for good measure to create the unique sound and spectacle that is The Antipoet. "The Antipoet are at the forefront of the new movement; their material dripping with parody. They take poetry to a new level, with Performances as memorable as they are hilarious" Chris Wilson - The Stage ANDY BENNETT Andy Bennett has been performing stand up comedy and poetry for half a decade, around Norwich and at Fringes and Festivals across the country. His wilfully shambolic style belies a cerebral and acerbic wit, and an honest and celebratory approach to life and performance. Andy writes poems that, two hundred years ago, would have got him rusticated. Andy also likes the word ‘rusticated’ a little more than a man should. AFTER HOURS CLUB - Spoken Word Open Mic Covers, originals, poetry, prose, rap, all welcome 5 minutes each. Seasoned writers and absolute beginners encouraged, this will be a friendly space to share your love of the spoken word with like minded souls.
