It's a bonus (May-Madness) SproutSpoken: Supersonic, and there's a big treat in store...
We're delighted to be welcoming Luke Wright to Sprout Health Foods, supported by SproutSpoken favourite Chris White along with the lovely lass from just over the Tamar: Anto Niaorfar - aka. Antonia Raines.
Flamboyant, political and riotously funny, Luke Wright creates inventive poems with loads of heart. Part Essex wide boy, part dandy fop, he writes from the sidelines about small-town tragedies and national farce, then performs his work with snarl and spit.
Since 2006, he has written and performed ten spoken word shows and two verse plays, touring them to top Literary and Arts Festivals from Australia to Scotland via Hong Kong and Bruges.
He’s won a 4Talent Award, a The Stage award, a Edinburgh Festival Fringe Award, a Saboteur Award, and the NFBC short film competition at the 2010 Festival de Cannes Film (Festival). He’s been shortlisted for an East Anglian Book Award, an Off West End Award, and an Amused Moose Comedy Award.
Alongside his own shows, Luke is John Cooper Clarke's regular support act, performing to crowds of 2,000 people at venues such as The London Palladium and The Palace Theatre in Manchester.
As seen on: BBC1, BBC2, BBC3 as well as ITV1, ITV2, Sky Arts & Channel 4.
As heard on: BBC Radio 1, Radio 2, Radio 3, Radio 4 and 5-Live.
