Comedy and whimsy from two of the South West's funniest spoken word performers.

Rob Barratt is a Dudley-born and Cornwall-based comic poet, humourist and singer. His brain-tickling, word-mangling performance combines clever word play, verse and song with satire, parody and audience participation. Rob deals with such important topics as squid, data-driven education, Neanderthal politics, the weather in Scotland, distressed furniture and tuk-tuks. In recent years Rob has appeared at folk, literature and arts festivals all over the UK and in Australia.

“This is not only clever but I think it’s very funny” (Mike Harding)

“His head is well and truly located in ‘Planet Barratt’, clearly a place of wonderfully bizarre inspiration” (Coventry Telegraph)

“One of the funniest performers yet. His audience was with him from the moment he began“ (Write Angle, Petersfield)

Robert Garnham is a comedy spoken word artist, originally from Surrey. His whimsy- driven poems are off-beat, high energy and hilariously deadpan, looking at everything from badgers who want to be in soap operas, a love affair with a Muppet, to loading the dishwasher with a famous opera singer. He's a multiple slam champion and twice long-listed as Spoken Word Artist of the Yeat. He recently headlined at The Duplex Cabaret in New York and the King Kong Klub in Berlin, and has been featured on a TV advert for a Building Society.

"An excellent poet with an inimitable voice and a nice smile". (Matt Harvey).

'Clever and entertaining. Go see'. (Barnstaple TheatreFest)

"Wise beyond his years". (Word NYC).
