“I write poems for people who don’t like poetry Many people see poetry as some great, lofty British tradition they can’t connect with. But poetry is everywhere; they’re words that just have to work a bit harder.”

Teacher, poet, comedian and ‘internet sensation’, Mark Grist wants to learn how to rap.

His students can do it, so it should be easy, right?

Based upon the hit podcast series, this show invites you to join Mark as he travels the country, interviewing MCs and stumbling his way through his own unique rap syllabus.

Packed full of acerbic wit and wordplay, laugh-out-loud revelations and the most bizarre music video you’ve ever seen, this is a show that celebrates all that rap can (and perhaps shouldn’t) be.
