The final performance of a comedy meets poetry show in Shoreditch where the spoken word genre comes together is set for a hilarious conclusion.
Stand Up and Slam at the Comedy Cafe Theatre sees six acts from the worlds of comedy and poetry go head-to-head in three rounds of stand-up versus performance poetry.
It is taking place at the theatre in Rivington Street today (Thursday).
Hosted by team captains comedian Paul Sweeney and poet Dan Simpson, the show is full of top-class performers presenting special prepared material, onstage ad-libbed battles and topped off with tongue in cheek banter.
At the end of the night, the audience has the final say who wins.
