Jack Dean

Jack Dean

A poet with epic tales from the Gameboy generation.

*

Jack Dean started rapping in an atrocious punk-rap crossover band aged 15. Since then he's calmed down a bit, got a girlfriend, and carried his love of shouting at strangers to many places, including the Bowery Poetry Club in New York, Latitude Festival, the Radio 4 National Poetry Slam and a male beauty contest in Hackney.

Jack takes the hip hop medium he grew up with, goes out with it gets it drunk and pushes it down the high street in a shopping trolley full of fireworks at 4am. Maybe. He has produced four studio albums, two touring shows and a whole heap of provocative tweets.

Jack has worked with Apples and Snakes on a range of projects since 2010, and continues to sing their praises wherever he goes. He currently works at the Bike Shed Theatre in Exeter. His debut poetry collection, Poems For Grown Up Children, was published on Burning Eye Books in August 2013.
