Will Penswick: Dank Verse
The Bill Murray, Islington, United Kingdom
He's world's worst poet. Shame he doesn't know it. Maverick, renegade and idiot Will Penswick presents an hour of his head-splitting poetry. ★★★★ Plays To See ★★★★ Radio Ha-Ha ★★★★ Broadway Baby
Sex, death, Tim Henman, pigeons, the Faroe Islands, sex, Meghan Markle, Paris, divorce, Nazis, sex, cassaroles...no subject is too out there for Will Penswick.
Brought to you by one of the most enigmatic figures in modern literature, not at all fresh from his Edinburgh Fringe run, Dank Verse is a mixture of shocking (in both senses of the word; it’s awful) spoken word poetry, audience interaction, something called: ‘Haiku Corner’ and Penswick's views on life, love and more often than not, himself. Voice of a generation? Umm...
Imagine the worst poetry you’ve ever heard. Then multiply that by 1000 and give it to an artist who believes it’s perfect. Dank Verse asks you to forget everything you’ve ever known about art as Will Penswick tries to present an hour of his “best loved” work. A maverick, a renegade and a terrible flirt, Penswick’s canon demands attention, and now that he’s finally got it who knows what he might perform.
Laugh with him, laugh at him but either way...you’re very welcome.
