A wildly original poetry collection written and read by one of the UK's most exciting young comics. A poet who favours dark suits, lager and long hot baths, he works on BBC Four in Charlie Brooker's Newswipe and on Radio 4, doing his late night poetry show.
In 2009 he won the Edinburgh Comedy Award for his poetical recital The Slutcracker and has filmed some of his verse in black and white to overwhelming critical approval. Billed by Time Out as "He's a genius plain and simple" Tim's incomplete and unabridged reading of his book is hilarious and inventive, playful and punchy, and light and dark by turn.
Contains some strong language and content.

Tim Key's outsider observations and highly musical timing had me laughing in bed.
Mario. He tolerates only so much.
I am an avid listener, with a great passion for all things spoken word, including Hip Hop and Performance Poetry. Vive la difference!
...And more like skipping down the street with a carving knife, singing sea shanties whilst eating a cream tea.
In other words, listen to these weird and wonderful and always darkly amusing little poems and you'll see what I mean.
God bless you, Mr Key.
Loved it, just a shame it wasn't a bit longer. His delivery makes it well worth it the drafts near the end are hilarious. Will listen more than once!
