How I Came To Be Where I Never Was

Jonny Fluffypunk: How I Came To Be Where I Never Was

How do you find yourself when you find yourself where you don't belong? Jonny Fluffypunk grew up in the far-flung, forgotten reaches of outer suburbia. In 1984, he was fifteen. This is a story about being the first punk in the village and the only trainspotter in eyeliner. About unrequited love and youth clubs and John Peel and the forgotten gods of small record shops; about making your own myth and letting go and a million everyday life-changing moments in the back end of nowhere. This is a one-hour, energetic and engaging solo performer piece that fuses elements of theatre, storytelling, comedy, stand-up poetry (think John Cooper-Clarke not John Keats) and even a bit of ukulele.

Talking To Strangers

Laurie Bolger: Talking To Strangers

Stand-up poet Laurie Bolger brings you a charming, chatty and witty new show about the impact of strangers. Through storytelling, poetry and song she asks: how does that annoying passenger on the bus turn out to be the stranger that saves the day? Talking to Strangers is a delightful celebration of random encounters and how we are all strangers - until we’re not! Laurie was recently appointed lead facilitator for BBC 1Xtra’s Words First London and shortlisted for Young Poet Laureate for London. She has performed at venues such as The Royal Albert Hall, Old Vic Theatre and 02 Arena as well as being Poet in Residence in schools libraries and Queen Elizabeth’s Olympic Park. Laurie currently hosts BANG Said the Gun London’s leading stand-up poetry night and multi award winning poetry podcast Round @ Laurie’s.
