Under the Edge Arts, The Chipping, Wotton-under-Edge GL12 7AD, UK


Andy Gilbert, the UK’s number one poetry teacher, returns to UTEA with a masterclass of advanced techniques. Gilbert also uses poetry to conduct a ground-breaking social experiment. The content is new, but the delusion remains the same. Strong language/adult themes.

Official Buxton Fringe Review:

Andy Gilbert is the Pam Ayres for the dirty minded. His poems are accessible, fun and entertaining. But filthy.

His witty poems cover many subjects including: menopause, life from the point of view of a toilet seat, anal sex, S&M, death, weddings and funerals to name just a few.

He proposes a dating site, ‘Partners in Rhyme’ where his own entry runs along the lines, “a farting, burping, beer slurping man, come and get me while you can”. You get the idea.

There is some audience interaction - ‘examples of how to include “bastard” in poetry’ and a discussion on whether animals or even objects can be classified as bastards. The evening finished with a US Marine Corps call and response – suitably coarse.

An entertaining hour of smut, word play and not-so-subtle innuendo.

As the phrase goes, ‘If you are easily offended this may not be for you’. Great fun.
