Luke Wright

Award-winning poet and performer Luke Wright

Winner of the 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 “terrific new book: subtle, nuanced and movingly personal. A hurt man taking stock in fresh words”.

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

“The bard of lockdown” – The Telegraph
