Thick Richards Swear School – A fast-paced crash course about bad language

Punk poet, Thick Richard, brings informative, foul mouthed show Swear School to Contact Theatre this May 

A fast-paced crash course in everything you wanted to know about bad language that school couldn’t teach you. 

The audience is asked to join a class of sinister puppets as the dyslexic Thick Richard looks at the history, definition and use of swearing in his darkly humorous, educational show.

Thick Richard has been pedalling his potty-mouthed poems, cynical, lyrical, jet-black humour, intelligent wordplay, well-crafted verse, and occasionally acerbic, well-targeted comic attacks for the last 16 years. 

A support for Kate Tempest, Arthur Smith and The Fall, Thick Richard was also presenter of BBC 6 Music’s Beat of the Day.

 Originally created to present to college students, Swear School will take the taboo of adult language head on and open audience’s mouths and minds.

Contact, Wed 3rd May until Saturday 6th May, 7.30pm. £11 / £6 conc. Over 18s.
