London comedy poet John Hegley, known for his comedic poems discussing the trials and tribulations of simply existing, got his start performing his songs outside a shoe shop in Hull in the 70s.
Fortunately, he has come a long way since then, and brings his new show, The Adventure of Monsieur Robinet, to Canada Water Culture Space.
Hear all about M. Robinet, a Frenchman with some unusual (but clean) habits, which include burying his dog’s kennel and his own luggage pieces. These stories appear alongside other new works, which include an address to aliens on the subject of transport, a poem about a non-talking parrot and some animal impersonations with the aid of a handkerchief.
The audience is invited to sing along. But not to dance. Much.
