Monday Night Alternative featuring Mr Gee
Mon. 19 October 2009 | 8 - 11 PM
Mr Gee started off as a DJ playing mainly Hip Hop and Funk grooves in clubs and bars. He then became interested in Spoken Word and for many years has hosted the highly-acclaimed poetry night in London, Brix-Tongue.
On radio he’s guest-hosted the London Diaspora Live show on Resonance FM and is the main host for the performance poetry series Bespoken Word on BBC Radio 4. However he was best known as the ‘Poet Laureate’ on Russell Brand’s hugely popular and controversial Radio 2 show (and was involved in the infamous Sachsgate affair). He wrote an on-the-spot improvised poem every week during each show (which earned him a Sony Gold award). He also writes topical poems on current affairs for BBC regional radio which are collated for BBC radio podcasts.
The Monday Night Alternative is a new spoken word club produced by Amy Wragg of SoapBox.
