Chuckle Busters joins forces with Milk Poetry - Bristol’s finest purveyors of spoken word delights - to bring you an Edinburgh Preview from the incredible, genre-spanning Jack Rooke, plus support from comic poet Bróccán Tyzack-Carlin.
JACK ROOKE: LOVE LETTERS
Dear reader, you may know me from such tragedies as Dead Dad (Radio 4's Good Grief) and Dead Friend (BBC Three's Happy Man) but this year I'm dead chuffed to perform comedy about shagging blokes! No one dies and it's set to a beautiful live harp. Straight people welcome so long as they don't fidget. P.S. your dad reckons you'll love it (he's just in my shower, says he'll call in the week!).
