The Working-Class Poet: Tales From an Underdog Perspective
September 3, 2016 @ 9:30 pm - 10:30 pm
Jamie’s work has been described as raw, energetic, hard-hitting and distinctly honest. He blends politicised social commentary with acerbic wit and punk snarl taking the audience on a journey through narratives of discontent, failure, class, identity, incarceration, and small, priceless underdog victories. From the perils of Monday morning random drug-tests, and over-enthusiastic local UKIP candidates, through Shakespeare and how he’s fallen into the wrong hands in the modern age, he leaves no stone unturned. He delivers his verse with charisma, streetwise intellect and rough diamond charm.
Imagine John Cooper-Clarke, replace the heroin with steroids, throw Charles Bukowski, Irvine Welsh, Henry Rollins, and James Kelman into the mix and you’re somewhere close: sound good? Damn right he is! A show not to be missed!
