He’s the world’s worst poet…and Brighton is about to know it.

Sex, death, Christianity, Tim Henman, pigeons, divorce, Nazism, casseroles; no topic is too out there for Will Penswick. Brought to you by one of the most enigmatic figures in modern literature, Dank Verse is a mixture of shocking (in both senses of the word; it’s awful) spoken word poetry, audience interaction, Penswick's views on life, love and more often than not, himself. Voice of a generation? Umm...

“This is a seriously funny show and he is a very sharp performer...you will be in for a comic treat”
★★★★ - Plays To See

Imagine the worst poetry you’ve ever heard. Then multiply that by 1000 and give it to an artist who believes it’s perfect. Dank Verse asks you to forget everything you’ve ever known about art as Will Penswick tries to present an hour of his “best loved” work. A maverick, a renegade and a terrible flirt, Penswick’s canon demands attention, and now that he’s finally got it who knows what he might read. Laugh with him, laugh at him but either way...you’re very welcome.
