Upcoming Gig: Anti Slam London!

Roses are, er, red, violets are blue
Valentine's day poetry... watch out, I'm coming through!

The Anti-Slam London: Anti-Valentine's Day Special

Here's the official info:

The Anti-Slam returns to London with an Anti-Valentine’s Day Special, where the poet with the lowest score wins!

You may know what a poetry slam is: a group of poets present their self written texts, round after round. And then the few winners of those rounds compete in a final round. The poet with the highest score, or loudest applause, or largest number of hands raised wins. It’s fun, it’s competitive, it’s entertaining for the audience.

But what if the format of the slam was turned on its head? What if the point wasn’t performing the best piece – but the worst. We don’t just mean bad: we mean hilariously terrible. Laugh-out-loud embarrassing. Entertainingly cringe worthy. Poetry so bad it transcends quality… and becomes genius.

Ladies and gentlemen… The Anti-Slam! Where the poet with the lowest score wins! Featuring:
Niall O’Sullivan | Kat Francois | Adam Kammerling (current UK Anti-Slam Champ!).
Emma Jones | Charlie Dupre | Amy Acre | Amy McAllister | Stephanie Dogfoot |Peter Hayhoe | Katie Bonna | Keith Jarrett | Superbard | Paul Cree
Paula Varjack | Dan Simpson
With poets this good, being this bad, it’s going to be awesome.
When: Friday 15 February, 7.30pm
Where: The Gallery Café, 21 Old Ford Road, Bethnal Green, London E2 9PL
Tickets: £5 / £4 concessions – on the door
