About this event

Eight compete for a place in the Regional Final.

Robert Garnham is a comedy spoken word artist based in Devon. Over the last few years he has performed all over the UK, headlining many fantastic and legendary nights. His last two comedy spoken word shows have toured the UK appearing at festivals and fringes. Last year he was lauded as having one of the funniest jokes at the Edinburgh Fringe.

He has recently headlined at the legendary Duplex cabaret in New York, and has been longlisted for the last three years as Spoken Word Artist of the Year in the Saboteur Awards. His last two books have both been published by Burning Eye Books, and he has won slams across the UK.

Ken Cumberlidge: An older example of the breed, but keen to learn new tricks. Good around the house. Shows well. Slight tendency to become overexcited when meeting new people, but can be left unsupervised in mixed company with minimal risk. Judged joint Best In Show at Hammer & Tongue Cambridge, Nov 2017. Further evidence can be found online in various publications and on his Soundcloud page.

Hosted by local poet, musician, and unrepentant geek: Fay Roberts
