Stand Up and Spit is visiting Leicester. As part of the SUS national tour and at the invitation of Find the Right Words, stand up poet Kate Fox will head up a night of raucous poetry, alongside Talia Randall.
She has been commissioned to write and perform poems across BBC television and radio and has performed at venues from Latitude to the Stand Comedy Club, the Soho Theatre to Oakland University, USA and Turku Literature Festival in Finland. Publications include “Fox Populi” from Smokestack Books (2013), pieces in Bloodaxes’s “Funny Peculiar, Funny Ha Ha” and the “Iron Book of Humorous Verse” and she has edited several anthologies of young writers work. Kate is currently halfway through a PhD in solo stand up performance, class, gender and Northernness at Leeds University.
