Ash Dickinson @ Bunkers Hill

Mutliple slam champion Ash Dickinson twists quick-fire rhymes and offbeat lines into a mash-up of stand-up, theatre and rap. Expect old faves and devillish new pieces as Ash ruminates on Facebook, the rubbishness of men's fashion, knitwear for apes and has his fridge fall in love with him.

“Brilliantly surreal invention.. fabulous poems” - Edinburgh Evening News

"Impressive wordplay" - The Times

"A very cool combination of rap, rhyme, repetition and wry wit...Dickinson proves not only to be an incredibly gifted poet, but also a great comedian with a sharp eye for social commentary" - Winnipeg Free Press

"Ash Dickinson is a Performance Poet for the Lost Generation. If you haven't seen him, you haven't seen performance poetry" - Federation Of Writers (Scotland)

“Amazing..this poet wields words like wicked weapons, his vivid surrealism now overlaid with darker matter...and still those remarkable rhyme forms to astound your senses" -

“Weird and wonderful...refreshingly unpretentious with an obtuse humour and seemingly effortless, imaginative (yet) lucid, profound and surprisingly poignant” - Three Weeks

“Accessible and engaging...frequently self-effacing...a personable and easy going performer..a skilled writer, he tackles the big subjects like love, identity and nature and handles it all with skill and finesse" CBC Radio, Canada
