Bróccán Tyzack-Carlin: Turtle
Spoken Word
Adults only
Event organiser:
Slung Low

Bróccán Tyzack-Carlin presents Turtle - a comedy poetry gig.

“Saboteur-Award-winning wordboy Bróccán Tyzack-Carlin presents a new hour of stand-up comedy and poetry about all sorts of stuff. Sex toys, turtles and the intersection of Marx and the Spice Girls get a look in this time. People will call this spoken word. But all words are spoken if you say them.” Turtle intersects poetry and comedy with surreal storytelling to take a good look at the modern world. Mixing the personal, the political and the absurd, Bróccán skewers events from his own life; and the public experience.
The show's initial launch tour enjoyed a complete sell out run, with dates in London, Manchester, Sheffield, and Hartlepool.
