Poets vs. MCs
Stereotype-smashing verbal elasticity from the UK’s sharpest and most unusual collective of lyrical warriors!
What began in 2002 as an impromptu drunken poetry night heckle grew into the infamous annual battle of wits which sells out the biggest club venues in Brighton — and now Poets vs. MCs is bursting out of its South coast seams to audiences across the UK and beyond!
Pitting a team of rappers and poets against each other in competition for the tightest rhetoric, the wildest imagination and the most dextrous barbs, Poets vs. MCs playfully dismantles preconceived boundaries of both genres, presenting a showcase of talent that is as ingeniously intelligent as it is entertaining. A show for people of all ages, this is spoken word as you’ve never seen it before!
