Jackie Juno - Slam Poetry

sat22jul8:30 pmsat8:45 pm8:30 pm - 8:45 pm Jackie Juno - Slam Poetry


Jackie Juno is a familiar face on the festival scene with her off-the-wall hilarity and no-holds-barred frankness. Expect the unexpected as her show can lurch from scathing wordplay attacking the likes of self-serving Tories, to the surreality of waiting in queues, apologising, and the kinky alter ego of squeaky-clean nun Julie Andrews in The Sound of Music.


Her material can also be tender, sensuous and confessional. But most of all, it is funny. She has won lots of slams (including the prestigious Glastonbury Festival Poetry Slam), done two TEDx Talks, been chaired Bard and Grand Bard of Exeter for 8 years combined, and has hosted cabarets and poetry nights in various towns in Devon for decades. She has five poetry collections published, the most recent being ‘Priestess of the Powder Puff Experiment’ with Burning Eye Books (2022).


She is lead singer and lyricist with psychedelic rock band THE INVISIBLE OPERA COMPANY OF TIBET, has a bit of a map fetish, and is so painfully hip that she needs a new one.
