Johnny the Biblical Rapper aka JTBR aka TP

Johnny the Biblical Rapper aka JTBR aka TP
Johnny is a man,
Johnny is a white 30+ spoken word poet, 
Johnny is dealing with his urges and his wants,
Johnny is in a certain grief. 
Though Johnny hopes you'll have a great time tonight it might come across like he doesn't give a F*** about what you think

Jackie Hagan

A cosmic scally who downs champagne from her glittery false leg and likes people who smell of bedsits.

She’s also a working class queer amputee, a multi-award winning playwright and comedian and a Jerwood Compton Poetry Fellow.

Join Jackie for an evening of poetry that is “honest, uncompromising, tough and tender – and funny” (Sabotage Reviews).
