Jamal Hassan's bio reads "Jamal is the poetic equivalent of finding out that the drinks machine in your local McDonalds has quietly replaced its Pepsi button with spiced rum. He is confusing, frightening, delicious with ginger beer and lemon, and unhealthy in large doses". It's hard to sum him up in any other way so I thought why try? In this episode we talk about poetry in schools, how to make your performances comedic, his incredible poetry night Extra Second (@ExtraSecondLondon) and his exciting ventures into the world of combining spoken word with music. This guy is one to look out for! Come down to Bermondsey Project Space on 18th February to catch him perform at Build Love, Break Walls, an open mic night run by Shado (@Shado.mag). FREE drink on entry ;). On the show we get to hear '8:38', 'The Orgy', and finally 'Sleepwalk' - a horror piece that will shake you to you core. Don't worry afterwards you can Shake It Off (Jamal is a big Taylor fan btw)... Enjoy!
