Award winning stand-up comedian and poet Rob Auton (Dave’s Funniest Joke Of The Fringe award winner, Glastonbury’s ‘Poet In Residence’) returns with another heart-felt and offbeat comedy/theatre/spoken word show that explores hair and hairs.
Alongside performing solo, Rob hosts “the best poetry gig in the UK” (The Times) Bang Said The Gun. The spoken-word night’s raucous and anarchic spirit attracts a rich mix of new talent and some of the most established names in poetry/music including KATE TEMPEST, ROGER MCGOUGH and JOHN HEGLEY.
