Ray Shipley’s two big loves are stand-up comedy and poetry, but attempting to combine them has never turned out as well as they’d hoped. Can a comic write a convincing love poem? Can a poet write a biting joke about politics? Of course! But can they do it under time pressure and with the judgement of you, the audience, hanging over them? Join a panel of comics and poets for a comedy show with feeling, and a poetry show with hilarity. With Guy WilliamsDominic HoeyDanielle O’Halloran-Thyne, Audrey PorneEamonn Marra and Nathan Joe.
