Honest is the new poetry collection from all-round good egg Scott Tyrrell. Scott has been a poet and performer since he turn of the century. An award winning comedian, designer and slam-winning poet (including the BBC Slam and UK Anti-slam), he has performed his work from Berlin to Belfast and the Albert Hall to Glastonbury. He has written for stage, TV and radio and lives in Newcastle with his wife, son, a one-eyed cat and a small fluffy dog.

Honest features all of Scott’s warmth, wit and frank openness delivered with the bittersweet edge of a middle-aged creative who may be having a mid-life crisis or an existential revelation. With dad jokes and badgers. And buttons.
