Paul Levy talks to Lucy Danser about Stand Up and Slam! – a free show that pits poets against stand-ups. “Stand-up comedy: poetry’s idiot relation, right? Performance poetry: comedy’s boring cousin, yes? Let’s find out. Six phenomenal acts go head to head for your approval as poetry and comedy collide with unexpected and hilarious results! Each night our resident team captains are joined by the most exciting acts the festival has to offer. We’re mashing up the two art forms in an epic battle of spoken word. Who wins? You decide.” Lucy talks about the show and also about comedy at the Fringe.
