22 October

FBF: Tim Key in Conversation

Join comedian, actor and poet Tim Key in conversation about his new poetry collection , Chapters. 

Join Tim and he reads from and talks about his least ambitious project to date. Chapters is a slim book of the crap he’s been churning out over the past eighteen months. Poems about men getting stuck in webs, poems about the ancient city of Canterbury, poems about canoodling with a rose.

He'll be talking about what, if anything, the point of it all is, and sparking a healthy debate as to whether this collection should be broken up into chapters and, if so, why. (All of these discussions are also documented in the leftover space around the poems). The result is a splurge of words which very occasionally shine a light on modern times. 

'His brief verses range from the whimsical to the sinister . . . He is quick and mischievous... ' Guardian

'Key locates the spot where poetry, comedy and art intersect, picnics there pleasurably, then takes a crap on it.' Adam Buxton'  

'He's a genius plain and simple' Time Out
