Professional performance poetry from all over the UK!
Hosted by the amazing Angie Belcher, Bristol's 2nd most influential woman and stand up comedian!
Come and listen to the best spoken artists delivering sexy stanzas, vitriolic verse and bitter-sweet odes.

Stand-up poet and lo-fi theatremaker Jonny Fluffypunk has been dragging his art around the UK and occasionally beyond for over 25 years, deafly fusing bittersweet autobiography, disillusionment and wonder into an act that has established him as a firm favourite at gigs, festivals and housing benefit offices everywhere. He has two volumes of poems, micro-fictions and threadbare philosophy published by Burning Eye, and his solo ‘no-fi’ stand-up spoken word theatre shows, including Man Up, Jonny Fluffypunk- One Man's Struggle with Late-Onset Responsibility have toured extensively around theatres, garden sheds, summer houses, empty shops and Britain's other ad-hoc performance spaces in a blatant championing of homespun DIY culture. When not performing, Jonny runs workshops, putting shapes and colours into the minds of young and old alike. He’s a crucial third of Hip Yak Poetry Shack, ‘the south west’s favourite pop-up poetry event’, and also runs Mr Fluffypunk’s Penny Gaff, an alternative cabaret in his adopted home town of Stroud.

Doors 7pm, show starts at 8pm.
This event takes place in our downstairs venue "The Carousel", for information on accessibility please email daggerbookings@outlook.com
Tickets £10.00

This event is part of BRISTOL FRINGE FESTIVAL

Bristol Fringe Festival is launching its pilot year! Throughout July multiple venues across the city have come together to host a series of comedy, burlesque, theatre, performing arts and live music events, to showcase the incredible talent within the South West.

The aim is to bring Edinburgh Fringe Festival closer to home, allowing up and coming performers an opportunity to test out new material, giving the South West a platform for local talent and increasing tourism and trade to the city. We plan to do this every year, reaching out to more venues and more performers. July is a particularly challenging time for small venues and bars. Bristol Fringe Festival aims to get seats filled and pints in hands! All events are affordable or free!

Sponsored by Bristol City Centre BID, the British Association of Restaurants, Bars and Independents (Bristol), Cloak and Dagger and Loud and Funny CIC have been busy coordinating a program of events.

Expect stand up comedians, magic, family comedy shows, dance workshops, drag events and awesome bands.
