Description

The Bingo Bongo Spoken Word Cabaret brings you the most eclectic, electric and original spoken word cabaret to be found in town.

We scour the country for artists that inspire and delight us; the ones we would happily travel 500 miles to see, and bring them all together for one sumptuous rib-tickling, fist-punching, booty-shaking night at Oxford’s illustrious indie music venue, The Jericho Tavern.

Hosted by poetry power couple, the inimitable ‘completely spell-binding’ Tina Sederholm, and the ‘cause for concern’ that is Neil Spokes, this November we present for your delectation, three extraordinary guests...


Elvis McGonagall

Standup poet, armchair revolutionary and World Slam Champion.

Elvis has appeared on The One Show, The Culture Show and many other tv shows with the word ‘show’ in the title. A Radio 4 regular on Saturday Live, The Wondermentalist Cabaret and Arthur Smith’s Balham Bash, he even has his own Radio 4 sitcom, Elvis McGonagall takes a look on the Bright Side. Performing everywhere from the Edinburgh Fringe to The Glamour Bar in Shanghai, he is one the most prolific and well-known spoken word performers country today.

His new collection Viva Loch Lomond! collects together the greatest hits of an acclaimed performance career, covering everything from Scottish independence to William Wallace’s taste for cheese.

The Antipoet

Comedy hits poetry over the head with a double bass, a triangle and lashings of guyliner.

This comedic beat poetry duo are one of the most original acts on the circuit, these masters of mayhem have delighting and alarming audiences at festivals and clubs for the last ten years. A wry blend of anarchocynisism and comic observation, they never fail to get the crowd on their feet.


Emily Harrison

Medicated feminist poet. Sexually confident, socially awkward. Voted Best Spoken Word Performer 2016 at The Saboteur Awards, Emily performs regularly in London and across the UK, combining precise writing and bold performance. Astute and at times painfully humorous, her first full-length collection with Burning Eye Books confronts a search for love against the stark yet humanising backdrop of the psychiatric institution.


Supported by Apples and Snakes, ‘England’s leading performance poetry organisation’ www.applesandsnakes.org

P.S. There may or may not be poetry bingo. I know. We spoil you.
