STAND UP & SLAM!
Performance poetry: comedy's boring cousin, right? Stand up: poetry's idiot relation, yes? Let's find out. For the first time, the very best of London's spoken word scenes go head-to-head as comedy and poetry collide.
We're mashing up the two artforms for one night of spoken word: Stand Up & Slam! Six phenomenal acts from the worlds of comedy and poetry go head-to-head for your approval in three killer rounds of Stand-Up VS Performance Poetry.
