Event description
SproutSpoken: SuperSonic Newquay's brilliant sell-out night of music, performance and spoken word

About this Event

‘A greatest hits, best of golden oldies compilation (with some new stuff) from ‘Comedy’s poet laureate’ ’ (Independent).

SproutSpoken is proud (and super excited!) to present poet, comic, singer, songwriter and glasses-wearer, John Hegley to Newquay. John has captivated and devastated audiences all over the country, in theatres and festivals, at gigs at the Edinburgh Festival, and with numerous appearances on radio and television. This show drawn from his new compilation John Hegley’s New and Selected Potatoes shows the breadth of his appeal, with seriously funny, cleverly comic poems on everything from love, family, France, art and the sea to dogs, dads, gods, taxidermy, carrots, spectacles and – of course – potatoes.

‘Fabulously funny’ – Time Out.

‘Scandalously talented’ – Sunday Times.

‘John Hegley is to potatoes what Wordsworth has been to daffodils’ – Observer.

‘A mainstay of the alternative comedy scene … an incurable entertainer’ – Guardian.

‘Just because he is one of the funniest men alive, don’t underestimate his dedicated gentleness’ – ADRIAN MITCHELL, New Statesman.

‘Consistently plain-speaking yet metaphysical, mordant yet mellifluous, experimental yet traditional … he speaks many a true word in jest … one of our most entertaining and communicative poets’ – MICHAEL HOROVITZ, Telegraph.
