Two Poets and Two Comedians

Two Poets and Two Comedians

The History Troupe presents Two Poets and two comedians. In this medley of words, we have Ian Winter Ian is a writer, actor, director and performance poet having won prestigious slams including the Huddersfield Literature Festival slam and York’s Say Owt Loud Champion of Champion Slam.  He has also supported some of the UK's top performance poets in Luke Wright and Attila the Stockbroker.  He has taken his own plays to the Edfringe gaining great reviews and produced them in Hull gaining further great reviews.

Hull’s own Mike Watts who is a writer/spoken word performer and author of three collections of poetry, his fourth collection is to be published by ‘Wrecking Ball Press’ anytime soon.

Lyn Tidder, Hull born lass of many talents who has performed in Edinburgh and London, Lyn Tidder is a performer who’s never been afraid to say it as she’s seen it. As close to the bone as you could ever hope to get, be ready for anything.

And finally, Dave Smith who is a Hull based comedian finding his feet really well on the UK circuit, audiences are left with a friend for life, after hearing his deep depths of self-deprecation. He’s the council estate loveable rogue we all know and love. Dave has very quirky take on life, if it’s not his bad hairline, it’s his crossed eyes, if it’s not his eyes, it’s his boring voice. He is a warm energetic comedian who can entertain all. Let him take you to the murky truth about sharing bath water with family; the joys of eating chips fourteen times a week and why being ‘ugly’ has its advantages.
