I posted this in the Gig Guide but perhaps it belongs here?

Another great night - I only arrived 1/2 way through and apparantly missed some cracking poets.Been wondering... what does it take to get performance poets to riot? A few months back I did a poem taking the mick performance poets at the Tudor - everyone loved it! Tonight I did one assasinating the character of Wiganners and instead of throwing things at me. they clapped & cheered. Weird bunch!The night usually over runs. Due to slightly lower numbers and Darren's deft (deft not daft) comparing, it finished early. That's when things got a teensy bit bizarre and the I got a glimpse of what society would be like if it was left to performance poets.....The raucus, appreciative crowd were not willing to call it a day there. They yelled for Darren to share his lobster! He obliged. Dave C shared "his bitch" with us, Ian and his green ukukele had everyone going GaGa. Laura filled the space with infectious clicking... and Adele did the splits. I guess you had to be there! See you next month.
