AWARD-WINNING UNIQUE POETRY SHOW
DON’T BOTHER HEADS TO EDINBURGH FRINGE
The stand-up poetry show Don’t Bother, starring multi award-winning performance poet Bróccán Tyzack-Carlin, will be part of the line-up at this year’s Edinburgh Fringe Festival.
The comedy and poetry show about dead dogs, chocolate and nostalgia comes to Venue 302, Underbelly Bristo Square from Wednesday 31 July – Monday 26 August.
Alumnus of the Durham Revue, Bróccán Tyzack-Carlin presents a semi-coherent exploration of nothing in particular, using some words that rhyme and some more that don’t.
Blending surreal humour with storytelling and spoken word, Don’t Bother is a unique hour of comedy that is not to be missed.
On taking the show to Edinburgh, Bróccán Tyzack-Carlin said: “Don’t Bother is very much a passion project for me. In a lot of ways, it’s a response to all the things that have annoyed me about poetry and comedy shows I’ve seen in the past. Through its mix of surrealist observational comedy, and fantastical storytelling, this show merges stand-up and spoken word in a unique fashion.
“It’s a bizarre and entertaining hour but, first and foremost, it’s hopefully just a really good laugh. After developing and performing it for over a year, I am thrilled to finally be able to take it to Edinburgh Fringe for an extended run. It is a joyous, surreal and at times thought-provoking show, and I cannot wait to share it with a wider audience.”
Bróccán is the winner of Best Spoken Word Show at 2019’s Sabateur Awards and Manchester Word War 2018, and is a Hammer and Tongue National Finalist.
What the critics say:
“Intricate, cleverly written, heavily visual and
full of wonderful imagination”
“…a performer who may be at the start of his career but is at the top of his game”
