Got the smartphone blues? Stand-up poet Dan Simpson focuses his high-speed fuzzy logic on the screens and machines that rule over our lives. As the robots rise and deep learning AIs threaten to take over the world – how will humanity survive? An hour of emoji poetry, selfie stick performance, and computerised comedy from BBC / Glastonbury wordslinger Dan Simpson.
First shown at Edinburgh Fringe:
"the perfect antidote to the perpetual screen-burn of our internet-obsessed age" - The Scotsman
"a talented wordsmith - this is poetry for the selfie generation." - West End Wilma
