Went to Felix Dennis's 'Did I mention the free wine tour' at Komedia last night. Very odd event -- a bit more like a wedding reception than a poetry reading! Lots and lots of (very nice) wine and waiters coming round with canapes -- I got quite drunk. Dennis read his rhyming poetry like a gruff bingo caller from a lectern, with the words appearing on a screen behind him. He got shirty with a heckler (who wanted to light up a gasper, like wot he was doing). Recommended. All poetry readings should be like this!
