Description

Teacher, poet, comedian and 'internet sensation' (Sun), Mark Grist has just seven weeks to learn how to rap. His students can do it, so it should be easy, right? Based upon the hit podcast series, this show invites you to join Mark as he travels the country, interviewing MCs and stumbling his way through his own unique rap syllabus. Packed full of acerbic wit and wordplay, laugh-out-loud revelations and the most bizarre music video you've ever seen, this is a show that celebrates all that rap can (and perhaps shouldn't) be. **** (Guardian, Scotsman). 'Epic!' (Ice Cube).

Really enjoyable show. Mark Grist is so engaging. I know little about rap but it did not matter - it was an education. Well worth going to see.

Awesome show!

Remembered Mark from his viral youtube rap battle video and some little bits after that but this show is so much more!

So well written and performed. Great mix of medias. Great story telling. Brought my mum who's not interested in rap or spoken word and she loved it.

We visited the Fringe for four days and this was the best show we saw in all of that time. Mark is a master performer. The rap pieces go from hilariously bad to incredible - as teachers we were in stitches during one in particular!

We knew very little about rap when we sat down in the room but he had us all laughing along just as much as the rap fans there. We will definitely come and see him again!
