Tim Key: Poetry, a string quartet and a boat


Comedian, actor and performance poet Tim Key won the 2009 Edinburgh Comedy Award with a solo poetry show called The Slutcracker.

For his latest project, he has teamed up with a string quartet to create an album - on vinyl - of his poetry, set to music. And it was all recorded on a boat.

It is therefore not surprising that the album, which has just been released, is called Tim Key. With a String Quartet. On a Boat.

BBC News went along to an exclusive gig to find out more.
