Demented Eloquence

Sharp and comic performance poetry from Rapunzel Wizard and Amanda Aitken


Thursday 2 September 2010
7pm – 9pm

The Coffee House, Aberdeen [Map]

Admission by donation

An evening of performance poetry that will be both demented and eloquent. Where stand up comedy and poetry meet are the muddied waters inhabited by Rapunzel Wizard and Amanda Aitken. Their siren voices will entice you into the mire. Prepare for laughter, insight, and soiled footwear.

Rapunzel Wizard

Rapunzel Wizard is Aberdeen's own merciless word mangler. Expect him to put the boot into politicians, reality TV, and the stupidity of daily existence. Don't expect him to get a haircut and a proper job.

Amanda Aitken

Amanda Aitken is a storytelling performance poet, whose work has been described as sounding like an 8-year-old who has eaten too many E numbers.
