Verbal Tapas
Rob Gee

Comedian, poet and ex-mental health nurse, Rob has performed at over a hundred fringe festivals across the world and received over twenty awards for his solo shows. Poetry slam victories include the Edinburgh Slam, BBC Two’s Why Poetry Matters Slam, the Toronto $83 Slam, the Arts Council's Lit-Up Slam and the Orlando Poetry Smackdown. Rob’s is the only performance ever to have instigated a fight at the Leamington Spa Peace Festival.

Drawn largely from his experiences as a mental health nurse, Rob’s live set is a celebration of the chaos and adventure that lurks beneath the veneer of everyday life.
