John Hegley is widely known as one of the country’s most innovative comic poets with several best-selling volumes of poetry to his name.
He is a regular sell-out at The Edinburgh Festival. He has performed at the Montreal Comedy Festival, the USA Comedy Festival in Aspen, with Ulrika Jonsson & Anita Dobson in The Pyjama Game and on BBC R4’s Hearing With Hegley
Alongside the potato poems are other vegetable activities, including Pass the Parsnip, Flinging the Fennel and possibly Vegetaboules. Certainly some French content. Family songs and stories. Drawings of Henry viiith and some dogs. Hearts broken and mended. Jolly and melancauliflower and borrowing the brother-in-law’s wheelbarrow. Come and singalong.
Devised to some extent for adults but with certain appeal to any approaching double figures.
