An evening of spoken word and stand-up comedy is being held at Petroc Theatre on Thursday, March 22.

Award-winning festival favourites, Byron Vincent and Jonny Fluffypunk, offer their unique and refreshingly off-kilter comic observations on life, mental health and late onset fatherhood.

This is event is part of Word on Tour, a 26-date live literature tour of South West libraries from Somerset to the Scilly Isles, showcasing the region’s huge range of writing talent.

Byron Vincent is a writer, comic performer and activist. He has performed on Channel 4, BBC and Radio 4, where he has spoken about his own experiences of growing up in the care system.

A fine purveyor of bittersweet autobiography, political d and whimsy, Jonny is a firm favourite at festivals and arts venues.

Student tickets are free and can be booked via Petroc Theatre. Tickets priced at £5 for the public can be bought via www.eventbrite.co.uk
