This hasn’t been widely reported but I was going to be the poet at Joe Biden‘s inauguration. He wanted me to do my poems ‘Ham’, ‘Jam’ & ‘Spam’ as he saw them as a symbol of hope, showing that despite America currently being divided all Americans have the potential to come together as sandwich fillers. However due to Covid19 I wasn’t able to travel, so they gave the gig to some young poet (I’m not sure what happened to her). Should the pandemic be resolved in 2025 I’m sure I’ll get an invite from President Ivanka.
Should you have 26 mins spare check out my comedy podcast. Cheers.
I’ve always assumed that my poems appealed to a younger demographic but the other day I performed a couple of new poems to what could be described as an older audience and they were received well.
It would appear from the feedback the audience were able to relate to my new poems about ageing and being skint.
So perhaps my appeal is universal (smiley face).
Should you require a comedy poet for your event feel free to consider me. I’ve been performing since 2000, doing shows for Apples & Snakes (nationally), Commonword (North West) plus for Lemn Sissay at the Royal Festival Hall and more recently Terry Christian‘s Mad Manc Cabaret.
I’m currently based in SE London.
