Stand-up comedy: poetry’s idiot relation, right? Performance poetry: comedy’s boring cousin, yes? Let's find out! Stand Up & Slam is a battle show where six phenomenal acts from the worlds of comedy and poetry go face-to-face in three killer rounds of spoken word.

Produced by Chatback Comedy and Dan Simpson, with monthly shows at Camden Comedy Club and Komedia, Brighton. The show has been a sell-out at Edinburgh Fringe, and is available for booking for outdoor and literature festivals.
