Two poets and a musician combine to present a comic and lyric portrait of Aotearoa New Zealand and its place in the South Pacific today. Their Mad Doggerel poetry cabaret is full of cascading words, wild musicality and lightning humour.

David Eggleton, the current Poet Laureate of Aotearoa 2019 - 2022, has been described as a jazz-bop-beatnik poet 'whose poems never cease to amaze and astound in their creativity ... in performance he is no longer a just a poet but a ranter, a raver, a conjuror ... his poetry spirals into today's world from a Polynesian heritage'. David Eggleton, an acclaimed writer, has received just about every literary award for poetry it is possible to receive in New Zealand, from the Prime Minister's Award for Excellence in Poetry in 2016 to Best First Book of Poems in 1987. Overseas, amongst other events, he has taken part in the Poetry Olympics and the Ranters' Cup Final, winning Street Entertainer of the Year for Poetry at the London Convent Garden Festival.

Daren Kamali was a founding member of the South Auckland Poets' Collective in 2008 and a co-founder of Niu Navigations in 2013, an organisation aimed at encouraging young Pacific writers to tell their stories. An accomplished performance and slam poet, as well as a musician, Daren Kamali has travelled the world presenting poems based on Polynesian and Pasifika legends and his own life story.

Richard Wallis is a Dunedin-based classical guitarist. As a soundscape musician, he has worked extensively with David Eggleton in producing music recordings.
