“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 South Bank Centre 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.
Jack is currently touring a new show called Grandad and the Machine.
