My name is Luke Wright (as should be apparent). I’m a poet and sometime broadcaster. Every year I write a new poetry stage show and schlep it around arts centres, theatres, pubs and festivals. Not, as some claim, because I’m “committed to taking poetry to the people” but because it pays my mortgage. And I love it.
I’m currently showing off my eighth show - Stay-at-Home Dandy. It’s touring March-June 2015. I’m also on the road with John Cooper Clarke, check out the gigs page.
In the past my shows have sold out Edinburgh Fringe runs, toured to Australia, China and Europe and got five star reviews from the likes of The Scotsman and The List.
