Luke Wright’s Stand-Up Poetry Club
feat./ Elvis McGonagall & Martin Rowson
Quite the double bill this month. We welcome back stand-up poetry’s favourite curmudgeonly scot, Elvis McGonagall. His cats have long since lost interest so Elvis is coming down our way to bellow into the void of the post-truth world. This Radio 4 regular has suffered for his poetry, and now it’s your turn. Elvis will be joined by Martin Rowson, a multi-award winning cartoonist, writer and wannabe poetaster. You might be familiar with Martin’s stunning work for the Guardian, for which he has drawn cartoons for the past 25 years. But most people don’t know Martin is also a fine, fine poet. He channels all the same rage and wit into his words that he does his art. Tonight he gives good poem from his forthcoming collection Pastrami Faced Racist. Your host is, as ever, Luke Wright.
