Edinburgh Special

30 minutes
First broadcast:
Sunday 12 August 2012

Comedy, bonhomie, poetry, music and audience creativity in the company of Matt Harvey and guests.

Another chance to hear last summer's special Edinburgh Festival edition of Wondermentalist - the slightly interactive, comedy-infused poetry cabaret.

Showcasing Matt Harvey's peerless poetry, meet his nemesis, side-kick and one man house band Jerri Hart, and peerless guest poets, Kate Fox and Elvis McGonagall.

Kate Fox is the poet with Northern vowels and a love of puns, buns and rhymes, while Elvis McGonagall, stand-up poet and armchair revolutionary strolls in to the BBC's Festival site, on bail from The Graceland Caravan Park, near Dundee.

Like luxury muesli, Wondermentalism is a faith that contains sparkly, shiny multigrains of truth, wit, wisdom and laughter. Vitamin supplements for the soul.

Producer: Mark Smalley.
