A nationally acclaimed poet and one of the best cartoonists in the country will be performing together at Walton Community Centre in January.
Poet Ian McMillan is a regular on TV and radio. He’s appeared on Have I Got News For You?, Just A Minute on Radio 4, hosts a Radio 3 show called The Verb and was a castaway on Radio 4’s Desert Island Discs in November. He’s Yorkshire born and bred but has links to this area after graduating from North Staffordshire Polytechnic in 1978.
Cartoonist Tony Husband’s work appears regularly in Private Eye, The Times, the Sunday Express and other titles and has been named Cartoonist of the Year an amazing 10 times.
Their show at Walton Community Centre, in Whitemill Lane, on Wednesday 26th January at 7.30pm is called A Cartoon History Of Here. Ian will perform his solo poetry comedy and will then be joined on-stage by Tony for some improvised poetry-cartoon fun. Inspired by local gossip, characters and local legends, Ian and Tony perform comedy, poetry, song and large-scale cartoons drawn on stage.
