Poetry or Stand Up...You decide

This is a link to Armitage doing his thing at the Latitude Festival in 2008.  You've got to admire this.

It goes without saying that I take absolutely no responsibility for comments made by other YouTube users.


  1. "You may turn over and begin"

  2. I think it could be mostly be considered as stand up rather than poetry because of the witty and humorous stories he relates in between the two poems ( still can't believe the F OFF one though lol) and it also felt like he spent less time reading his poems.

    Funny thing is, while he was reading 'kid' I felt like if you just added some drums and a nice base, it could just as well turn into a rap. seriously, the guy has got some rhythm in his voice.
