Jack Dean Short Info

“Artists like rap storyteller Jack Dean make us excited about what  they might do next”
The Guardian

Jack Dean is a Yorkshire-based writer, performer and theatre maker who has carried his love of weird and wonderful arrangements of words to many places, from the Bowery Poetry Club in New York, Latitude Festival and the Radio 4 National Poetry Slam to a male beauty contest in Hackney (long story). Jack likes to take the hip hop medium he grew up with, go out with it, get it drunk and push it down the high street in a shopping trolley full of fireworks at 4am. He hopes you’ll join him on this quixotic adventure.

Ideastap Innovators Award winner 2012
Poetry Can Award nominee 2013
Apples and Snakes Poet of the Month October 2013
