LEAMINGTON SPA: Rhyming The Coconut

Saturday, June 20, 2009, 7.30pm prompt start, £2
Bath Place Community Venture,
Bath Place,
Leamington Spa,
CV31 3AQ

Rhyming The Coconut is a variety show of comic poetry with poems, songs, sketches and stories that celebrate the lighter side of verse. We combine performance poetry, comic songwriting and character comedy into an eclectic evening of rhyming fun.

The line-up includes:
Poet Dave Seymour with his odes to inanimate objects
Songwriter/singer Matt Priest and his unique mix of accapella poetry set to music
The world premiere of lost 70s cop TV show Steward’s Enquiry
The thoughts of recently paroled receptacle enthusiast The Jar Man
Monologic musings from the travels of rambling man Paul Cuff

Special guests are comic poet Emma Williams, who will be performing some of her bawdy fairytales, and writer Martha Greengrass, who will be reading her horticultural horror story.

The event will be hosted by comic poet Tom Steward, who will also be debuting a new epic poem about a smoking pigeon. During the show you’ll have the opportunity to enter your couplets into a competition to win some truly terrible prizes!
