This month, we present Man Up, Jonny Fluffypunk, the acclaimed debut show from stand-up poet, sit-up storyteller and give-up musician Jonny Fluffypunk! A funny, off-the-wall and poignant lo-fi stand-up spoken word theatre show about big dreams and little victories, about fatherhood and finding the hero within, however unpromising the exterior. It’s small, it’s intimate and it’ll be fun. Warning: contains sock puppets and references to anarcho-syndicalism.
“Sublime…well-crafted, tender and life-affirming. Highly Recommended” – FringeReview

Joining Jonny at the top of the bill will be award-winning UK singer/songwriter Kirsty McGee. Twice nominated for the BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards and winner of an IMA for Best Live Album in 2011, McGee has shared the stage with artists such as Karine Polwart, Eddi Reader and Suzanne Vega. Her songs have received BBC Daytime Playlisting and are regularly featured on the playlists of local and specialist radio stations. She has also performed sessions on BBC Radios 2 and 4.
‘The words drip with meaning. This breathlessly fragile and aching collection almost drowns in McGee’s absolute need to sing.’ – **** Q Magazine
‘Confident and earthy.’ – **** UNCUT
