Duelling Ukuleles, Tom Jones and Rohypnol all combine in this jam-packed jamboree of comedy, spoken word and songs that’s guaranteed to get your juices flowing.

Hot Pink Penny Ashton (Poetry Idol, Radio National NZ, Hot Pink Bits, Austen Found) and virgin sacrifice Matthew Harvey (Castleford Cub Scout Quiz Champion 1986) gush on love in all its glory, splendour and putrescence. Is the Power of Love a force from above leading your soul…or does it just make you want to puke? Does the world now need love sweet love…or peace in the middle east? Did you just call to say you love me…or to tell me to piss off?

Either way Ashton and Harvey will keep you entertained as they spew forth their observations not only on love, but on Daves, Fabric Softener, the c word and Rodney Hide’s thong.

Penny Ashton is a poet, comedienne, actor and improviser who has performed over 400 solo shows. In 2010 she performed at the Glastonbury Festival and headlined numerous UK Poetry Nights before heading to report at the Miss Universe Pageant in Las Vegas. Poetry Idol is also her brainchild which has become a mainstay of the Auckland Writers and Readers Festival over the past 4 years.
