Jah-Mir Early is an American poet, storyteller and the UK’s foremost improv spoken word artist. He describes his works as “ Putting people on a couch in my mind”
 
Jah-Mir has appeared as an invited guest artist for the BBC Edinburgh Fringe Slam, and performs regularly with Triple Jam Sandwich (Ronnie Scott’s) and monthly at the Hip Hop jam night Imaginary Millions (The Book Club). Jah-Mir is the producer and host of the landmark poetry night “Spoken” in London. Jah-Mir recently debuted his all-improv poetry show #BeSpoken at the Edinburgh Fringe to critical acclaim. His philosophy of the work is If you must be then, be Spoken.
‘If writing and sharing poetry is like holding up a mirror to your soul and then laying it bare for the audience, then Early’s style of extemporaneous poetry is also like opening a vein and letting every part of you flow out.” – Bunbury magazine.
