Words & Whippets poetry evening
In 2013 Words & Whippets poetry night debuted with a SELL-OUT show packed full of spectacular spoken word acts. Returning for 2014, Words & Whippets 2 presents a showcase of Yorkshire’s finest performance poets, compered by York’s own punk poet HENRY RABY.
- Leeds-based leading lady LIZI PATCH, theatre-maker & playwright
- GENEVIÈVE L. WALSH, scary fairy host of Halifax’s Spoken Weird night
- CHRIS SINGLETON, the King of Crowd-Versing and Imperator of Improvised Poetry
- And the reliable return of York’s ROB AUTON!:
Rob won the funniest joke award at the Edinburgh Fringe 2013. A hilarious stand-up poet, Rob’s poetry is also touching, surreal and magical. Rob will perform his uplifting and acclaimed hour-long solo masterpiece, THE SKY SHOW, which has wowed and wooed audiences across the country.
“Charming, eccentric & uplifting, Auton is a talent to watch”- The Independent
“If performance poetry is the new rock n roll, Mr Auton is Jarvis Cocker circa 1995.” – Broadway Baby
