Luke Wright – Poet and Man

Luke Wright

Little Theatre, Holme Street, Hebden Bridge
7.45pm to 8.50pm approx
£9 (£7)

Britain’s brightest, sharpest, best-dressed and most punchably handsome comic performance poet brings his latest show to Hebden Bridge. A rip-roaring raconteur and a hugely engaging performer, Wright’s show fuses Larkinesque commuter belt ennui with a quick-fire wit.

A 2007 4Talent Award winner, Luke is the host of Glastonbury’s Leftfield stage and has two five star solo Edinburgh shows under his belt. His debut, the multimedia Luke Wright, Poet Laureate took the 2006 Edinburgh Fringe Festival by storm, scooping a clutch of 5 star reviews before completing a national tour. Poet and Man has won Luke a ‘Spirit of the Fringe’ award.

‘The hard-working heir to John Hegley… comic verse is in rude health and the spearhead of its revival is Luke Wright’ (The Guardian)

Think you can cut the mustard (not to mention the ketchup, the tartare sauce, the salt and the vinegar) in the live poetry world? Luke Wright, the Slam-Master- General, will host an evening where you get the chance to jostle and joust (in a totally safe, verbal way) with your fellow poets in the charming surroundings of Yorkshire’s funkiest chippy.
