WINNER Saboteur Award for Best Spoken Word Performer 2021

Whether he’s opening for the Libertines or reciting Georgian ballads down your local, Luke Wright is
adept at taking poetry places it doesn’t normally go. John Cooper Clarke’s regular warm-up guy
writes poems that are tender, riotous, caustic and romantic then delivers them with the ferocity and
panache of a raconteur at the top of his game.

This is an ALL-NEW show with deliciously funny poems set against a backdrop of pandemic politics,
ageing parents, and the endless, droning culture war.

Wright’s third collection The Feel-Good Movie of the Year is out now from Penned in the Margins. Ian
Duhig calls it a “a terrific new book: subtle, nuanced and movingly personal. A hurt man taking stock
in fresh words.”

“Luke Wright is one of the greats. A poetic pugilist. Beguiling and hypnotic.” Carl Barât

“His performances rumble with rage, passion and humour.” Guardian

“He must be on some kind of dope” John Cooper Clarke

“Cool Poems” Patti Smith

“Fierce, wistful, romantic and witty. A sensational hour of poetry.” ????? The Stage

“The bard of lockdown” Telegraph
