Event Information

Shak
Poet and founder of the spoken Lyrik platform, currently dropping poetry videos and promoting spoken words artists.


Jay Sandhu
Nottingham-based Jay Sandhu is a comedian, writer and poet. Punchy, informative and witty, his poetry and comedy focus on race and culture. He has had multiple spoken-word pieces for the BBC, one of which launched a mental health project for young people. Jay is also part of the GOBS Spoken Word Collective and has performed at Bradford, Brighton and Edinburgh Fringe. He has headlined Late Stage Comedy, and Poetry Scum.

He has an upcoming feature show at Nottingham Comedy Festival. Jay has an upcoming poetry collection coming out called RACE.


Joey Collins
Joey Collins is part of a rare breed of artists, integrally independent and resolutely defiant. His blend of authenticity and startling honesty is in such demand right now, yet the songwriters that provide it are facing a crisis of extinction. In the past, the Nottingham artist has displayed himself bathed in emotional unrest and consistent turmoil, battling inner demons with wavering success. Collins is an artist who, had he been placed in the 1990s, might have gathered the demand and fanbase of those that came before him – the likes of Jeff Buckley and Elliott Smith – whose uncompromising attitude to songwriting structure and honest lyricism place them in the hearts and minds of lost poets across the country. Yet in the modern day, he stands out as one of a few singer-songwriters that provide a sense of idiosyncrasy in a saturated market of equally striving artists. In a world in lockdown, Live, Learn, Die & Forget It All acts both as a statement of fragility and confusion that can be felt by millions across the country, but also as a paean to self-reflection and emotional maturity. Joey Collins is finding his feet again, embracing positivity and the unknown possibilities of the future. Where he chooses to go next will be an intriguing prospect indeed. - Ben Stranding (The Mic Magazine)


Tommy
Midlands Comedy Award winner - Tommy Tomski is an irrepressible force of nature. Imaginative weaver of narrative with a machine gun style delivery of punchlines make this half jackel, half irradiated potato one to watch. Currator the award winning East Midlands comedy night 'Ofton Funny'.


Benny
Benny Shakes is a powerhouse of ‘funny’ built on a foundation of clever joke writing, from the daily struggles of living with a disability to his observations on redneck life.
Benny is a relatable and affable comic who 'raises the roof' every time. He does several shows online- Benny Shakes Things Up and Below The Belt with Benny. He is booked to do several fringes around England in 2021


John
John is an improviser, comedian and host from Nottingham. His comedy is resolutely geeky but he often talks openly about the struggles he's had with depression, anxiety and loneliness. He attempts to make those topics funny too. @LateStageComedy @LarklordShow


Shrusic
Shrusic - A multi-genre one man whirlwind of grace/ madness, beauty/ gross and warmth/ darkness. A bottle of viagra for the soul. No labels or logic, just language and love.
