Read'em and Weep

Author(s): Thick Richard
ISBN13/Barcode: 9781916147966
PRODUCT DESCRIPTION
Thick Richard explores the synergy between the stage and the page with lyrical, occasionally cynical, well-crafted verse, intelligent wordplay and jet-black humour. Read ‘em and Weep is a poetic diatribe, issuing challenges to political governance, corporate greed, unwarranted entitlement, an ingrained class system and the North/South divide.

Thick Richard has been peddling his potty-mouthed punk poetry since the turn of the century. He has presented BBC Radio 6 Music’s Beat of the Day, performed on BBC Radio 4, and supported Kate Tempest, John Hegley, Arthur Smith, The Fall, Jerry Sadowitz and Dr John Cooper Clarke. He lives in Old Trafford and co-hosted spoken word franchise Bang Said the Gun’s Manchester events during its six-month run at The Dancehouse Theatre. His most recent one-man show, Swear School (a crash course in everything you wanted to know about bad language – with puppets), toured the UK from 2017-19.

Praise for the author: “Thick Richard’s poems remind you of things you’d forgotten were true. His words are rattling and brilliant and shoot life back at you in all its futility and chaos and wonder.” – Kate Tempest “John Cooper Clarke channelling the spirit of Frankie Boyle.” – Terry Christian “I like a bit of fun, but this is ridiculous.” – Dr John Cooper Clarke “Much funnier than William Wordsworth.” – Arthur Smith “Uncompromising biting wit, brutally funny and true. An angry orator, a comedy wiz and super-talented wordsmith!” – Sophie Willan “One of the greatest spoken word performers of his generation. His fierce, funny diatribes offer an essential antidote to an ever more sanitised and derivative culture. A unique and authentic working-class voice.” – Byron Vincent
