The Edinburgh Festival Fringe show Matt Abbott is Skint & Demoralised comes to Manchester via Bad Language this weekend.
Matt Abbott provides a razor-sharp insight into 21st century Britain; a contemporary take on kitchen sink realism, fused with witty anecdotes, sordid confessions and a sharp political edge.
Matt will be supported by John Darwin, a fellow member of the collective A Firm Of Poets and host of a monthly poetry night at the Waterside Arts Centre in Sale.
“Full of great descriptive lyricism and astute storytelling” – Steve Lamacq
“Wakefield’s most articulate (and dare we say handsome?) street poet finds the romance beneath the realism. He’ll have you feeling better in no time” – NME Magazine
