Whether he’s opening for The Libertines or reciting Georgian ballads down your local, Luke Wright is adept at taking poetry places it doesn’t normally go. John Cooper Clarke’s regular warm-up guy writes poems that are tender, riotous, caustic and romantic then delivers them with the ferocity and panache of a raconteur at the top of his game.
This is an all-new show with deliciously funny poems set against a backdrop of pandemic politics, ageing parents, and the endless, droning culture war.
Wright’s third collection The Feel-Good Movie of the Year is out now, and British poet Ian Duhig calls it a 'a terrific new book: subtle, nuanced and movingly personal. A hurt man taking stock in fresh words'.
‘One of the greats. Beguiling and hypnotic.’
Carl Barât, The Libertines
‘His performances rumble with rage, passion and humour.’
