Mark Grist and MC Mixy came here to battle.

Their backup? An assortment of famous (and very dead) poets. It’s fast, it’s frantic and they have no idea who will win.

See Sylvia Plath take on Ted Hughes? Rabbie Burns up against Byron? In the Dead Poets Death Match you’ll choose the competitors and you’ll be the ones who’ll crown the winner. Let the wordy bloodbath begin!

Mark Grist performs as one-half of Dead Poets with MC Mixy, a double act fusing spoken word with hip-hop. This unique comedy and spoken word show gained a string of excellent and well deserved reviews at last year’s Edinburgh Festival.
