Coming up in September
Join us for a fun night of comedy with Robert Garnham and Rob Barratt, two of the South West’s funniest spoken word artists. Both of the Robbies perform all around the UK as well as internationally. After several years of enjoying each other’s work they have come together to present an evening of thought-provoking poetry, whimsy, song and daftness.

Robert Garnham is a comedy spoken word artist, originally from Surrey. His whimsy-driven poems are off-beat, high energy and hilariously deadpan, looking at everything from badgers who want to be in soap operas, a love affair with a Muppet, to loading the dishwasher with a famous opera singer. He’s a multiple slam champion and twice long-listed as Spoken Word Artist of the Year. He recently headlined at The Duplex Cabaret in New York and the King Kong Klub in Berlin, and has been featured on a TV advert for a Building Society.
“An excellent poet with an inimitable voice and a nice smile”. (Matt Harvey).
“Wise beyond his years“. (Word NYC).
Rob Barratt is a Dudley-born and Cornwall-based comic poet, humourist and singer. His brain-tickling, word-mangling performance combines clever word play, verse and song with satire, parody and audience participation. Rob deals with such important topics as squid, data-driven education, Neanderthal politics, the weather in Scotland, distressed furniture and tuk-tuks. In recent years Rob has appeared at folk, literature and arts festivals all over the UK and in Ireland and Australia.
“This is not only clever but I think it’s very funny” (Mike Harding)
“His head is well and truly located in ‘Planet Barratt’, clearly a place of wonderfully bizarre inspiration” (Coventry Telegraph)
“One of the funniest performers yet. His audience was with him from the moment he began“ (Write Angle, Petersfield)
