Edinburgh Fringe Preview
Wisebowm presents the world's first urban poetry musical: Chronicling his heroic struggles with addiction (to gluten), his attempts to win the heart of middle class beauty Samantha and how mindfulness came to his rescue; it's no surprise that Wisebowm is on his way to becoming an urban poet superstar. He loves his fans almost as much as he loves himself. Wisebowm: The Struggle Is Real is performed by character comedian Steve Whiteley and directed by Chris Head.
