“Award-winning wordboy Bróccán Tyzack-Carlin presents a new hour of stand-up comedy and poetry about all sorts of stuff. Sex toys, turtles and the intersection of Marx and the Spice Girls get a look in this time. People will call this spoken word. But all words are spoken if you say them.”
Turtle intersects poetry and comedy with surreal storytelling to take a good look at the modern world. Mixing the personal, the political and the absurd, Bróccán skewers events from his own life; the public experience; and demonstrates an unhealthy fixation with Radio DJ Tim Westwood. The show varies its comedy stylistically but stays consistently funny. The show’s initial launch tour enjoyed a complete sell out run, with dates in London, Manchester, Sheffield and Hartlepool. About the Artist Bróccán Tyzack-Carlin has headlined comedy and spoken word nights across the country and has performed his work at the Royal Albert Hall.

He received the Saboteur award for Best Spoken Word Show and was nominated for Best Spoken Word Performer. At the GM Fringe Awards, he was nominated for Best Comedy Show, and Best Newcomer. He won the Manchester Slam 2018 and the Huddersfield Literature Festival Slam 2019.
