February Special Guest

Thick Richard

Thick Richard 300

Tue 3rd Feb – Hysteria, Dalstan 578 Kingsland Road, E8 4AH
Wed 4th Feb – The Birdcage, Bristol

Thick Richard has been pedaling his potty-mouthed poems at festivals and
clubs up and down the land for the last 15 years. His cynical, lyrical,
jet black humour, intelligent wordplay, well-crafted verse, and occasionally
acerbic well-targetted comic attacks have  earned him much respect from artists and audiences from
Edinburgh to Glastonbury.“Stu-fu**ing-pendious” John Cooper Clarke
