WINNER Saboteur Award for Best Spoken Word Performer 2021 

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 poet’s quest for JOY! 

Wright’s third collection The Feel-Good Movie of the Year is out now from Penned in the Margins. Ian Duhig calls it a “a terrific new book: subtle, nuanced and movingly personal. A hurt man taking stock in fresh words.” 

And join Luke for a second, late night show. Find out more here.
