PLU Open Mic featuring Richard Earls

PLU Open Mic featuring Richard Earls

Richard Earls headlines PLU open mic on January 18!

Richard performs on the UK and Paris Spoken Word circuit at venues such as Paris Lit Up and Spoken Word Paris, Talking Rhythm, Greenwich; 1000 Monkeys, Guildford and The Big Untidy Night out in Reading. He toured with PLU last Spring and his first two gigs of 2018 see him returning to Belleville in January and The Poetry Cafe in London the following month.

What’s he like? Well, think of Mike Skinner meets a pan European John Cooper Clarke – delivering rapid fire vers libre readings that were prevalent in post-war beatnik circles – with a style all of his own. Not always spoken, sometimes sung, his poems cover subjects as diverse as death, dementia and desperation on the dancefloor (and that’s just the ‘D’s).
