a different-every-night, shouting & reading show... stories, poems and black humour. Bailey’s words deliver a linguistic kaleidoscope of caustic cartoons, crackpot prophesies and demented erotica. verbal diarrhoea, dirty jokes, venomous poetry, and tall tales that corkscrew deep into nightmares. tonight he is a voicebox and a microphone and nothing more: a potty mouthed poet, a reverend with a forked tongue, a standup comedian from hell, delivering a symphony of verbal adrenaline and twisted humour, a dense, poetic blend of the hallucinogenic and the hardboiled, a live action short story collection for the depraved, the depressed and the death obsessed.

"lip-blisteringly nihilistic beat poetry" (on previous work)

"a spoken word performance of such obliterating intensity that I wanted to curl up into a ball and cry." (on previous work)

"a juggernaut, a plosive onslaught…a mesmeric presence" (on previous work)
