JB Barrington: Showing Poetential on Thursday 27th October 2022

Cult performance poet JB Barrington is a Salford-born award-winning performance poet renowned for his searing satirical poetry and snarling delivery of sharp rhymes.

His funny, endearing and nostalgic poetry has made him one of the most powerful performers on the UK scene.

Showing Poetential delivers a rollercoaster of emotions with a brilliant and imaginative display of poetic writing covering social issues, economics, class and loss.

Barrington's unique, gritty style has won him several high-profile fans, including the bands Sleaford Mods and Reverend and The Makers who he has supported extensively on tour.

Barrington has been commissioned by BBC Radio Manchester, City of York Council (York Fairness Commission), Kendal Calling and Salford Arts Theatre.

Suggs from Madness was so impressed by Barrington's book 'Woodchip Anaglypta And NicotinedArtex Ceilings' he took a copy on stage with him at Kendal Calling 2016 during the sell-out Madness Saturday night headline showand read out one of the poems.

“Savagely funny and profoundly moving” Cheltenham Poetry Festival
“A warm charm, a rapier wit and a real appreciation of words” Louder Than War
“A man after my own heart who, like all of my working-class heroes, can prise a smile out of the adversity of austerity. A chap to be cherished and a gig not to be missed. If your week feels like tinned fruit, treat yourself to some Carnation Cream” Johnny Vegas
“He's funny, he's nostalgic, he moves you and we love him” Becky Want, BBC Radio Manchester
