THE CRITICS LOVE THE SHOW

'world-class – one of today’s greatest poetry performers' Carol Ann Duffy

‘If there's a more engaging presence on the radio than Barnsley poet Ian McMillan and a more entertaining show than Radio 3's The Verb then I don't know it’  Stuart Maconie, Radio Times

'a bewitching personality' The Guardian

AUDIENCES LOVE THE SHOW

‘One of the best evenings of entertainment I have ever experienced.’CLWYD THEATR CYMRU

'The verbal gymnastics of a north country Spike Milligan coupled with the comic timing of Eric Morecambe.'MARTIN DIMERY, FROME FESTIVAL

'Little seems to connect Indian writer GV Desanoi and the prose of his 1948 novel All About H Hatterr with Harvey Day, author of the Blunty pragmatic You Too Can Write For Money. But the bard of Barnsley Ian McMillian's latest show sees him brining both authors down from history's dusty high shelf for another look. As the presenter of Radio 3's The Verb, McMillian is well-versed in bringing literacy gems to light.' ABI BLISS Barnsley Civic, Thu; Philharmonic Hall, Liverpool, Fri.
