World Poetry Slam Champion Harry Baker had a lot of time to think about the important things in life during lockdown(s), and after initially penning reflective poems about missing hugging people he started making German pop bangers and reviewing toilet seats online.
He also very quickly realised how much he missed performing live to people! A show of new poems and realisations celebrating the little things in life that make us who we are, focussing on the connection at the heart of it all and what can happen if we lose that.
Including the story of how a spontaneous decision to run a marathon dressed as a falafel turned into a diss track to Chris Evans that raised £5000 for charity, it is his most playful, heartfelt, uplifting, unashamedly Harry Baker-y show yet.

Off the back of his debut BBC Radio 4 stand-up special, Neurotopical, gag-filled comedian and social commentator Don Biswas brings an extended version of the show to Norden Farm.
Through a lens of dyspraxia, mild Asperger's (both difficulties that affect social and coordination skills) and disaffection with the status quo, Don takes a firm if uncoordinated stab at life in the 21st century to uncover the truth about austerity, immigration, the farce that is British politics and even modern-day conspiracy theories.
He also explores what it’s been like to grow up with undiagnosed learning difficulties while coming from a traditional middle class Indian family and how it’s come to shape his politics and turned him into an activist.
As seen on BBC Asian Network and regular on BBC Radio 4.
'By the quality of his jokes alone, including a choice one about a corporate gig for the DWP, Biswas is the show’s star turn' The Guardian
