Punk in Drublic IV at Lock 91
Lock 91, Manchester
Tuesday, 23 Jul 2019
19:00 – 22:30
After June's event's raised nearly £400 for Mustard Tree, we return with a killer line-up of Comedy and Poetry for another shit-hot shindig in aid of Mustard Tree.
July's event features Comedy from
Harriet Dyer- Hilarious stand-up who tackles a plethora of subject matters and issues, including mental health. Former co-host of Jason Manford's Absolute radio show, and the presenter of the 'Don't worry Bi (polar) happy' podcast.
“Dyer exists in a joyful equilibrium, at the point where self-depreciation and a total embracement of oddness meet in utterly likeable harmony… Beautifully, brilliantly weird… Absolutely worth a watch” - Broadway Baby
Kat Molinari- Rib tickling and relatable comedian from the North-west. Kat is a Punk in Drublic veteran whose material covers sexuality and Jehovas witnesses extensively.
Ros Ballinger - Wonderfuly talented Poet and Comedian, Ros Ballinger has been a regular face at Punk in Drublic since being one of the headliners at our first ever gig. Ros's new show 'Better than Dying alone' is at this year's Edinburgh Fringe
...And Poetry from
John Darwin - The co-host of Halifax's legendary SPOKEN WEIRD, and the former co-host of Sale's Write out loud. John has been delivering profound poetry and prose for a good few years now, and his latest collection 'I meet myself returning' has just been published on Flapjack press.
"For those of us who struggle with the concept of permanence, who gulp when we're asked where we're from and shiver when we're asked who we are, this is a collection that is sorely needed. It's the antidote to the straight-edge, consumer-driven Grand Designs poison of 21st Century life and it should be prescribed to everybody." - Geneviève L. Walsh, spoken word artist
Benjamin Guilfoyle - Benjamin, the Wooly Hat Poet, has been gracing the open mic at PID fora couple of years, and his material covers joy and jubilation as much as it does justice. He recently made the news around the North-west with his brilliant 'Wondering Poet tour' on which he walked between each venue, with nowhere to stay, and raised £1200 pounds for the LDHAS and the Lancaster Children’s Library. What a legend.
All hosted by MC Rob Steventon.
There is also an open-mic section. Apply for a slot through at firstname.lastname@example.org
In addition to the brilliant bill, we'll be hosting a huge charity raffle.
All (as mentioned) is in aid of Mustard Tree - a brilliant charity alleviating the plight of Manchester's homeless & impoverished.
