A fast-paced crash course in everything you wanted to know about bad language that school couldn’t teach you. Join the class of sinister puppets as punk poet Thick Richard looks at the history, definition and use of swearing in his darkly humorous, educational show.
Swear School examines the language of swearing, blasphemy, physical gesturing, euphemisms, childish swearing, looking at why we swear and what it means to be offended. Dragging us through an A-Z celebrating and unpicking this area of the English language as the funniest yet most damaging expressive form of communication we have. Very, VERY strong language throughout!
Thick Richard has been pedalling his potty-mouthed poems, cynical, lyrical, jet-black humour, intelligent wordplay, well-crafted verse, and occasionally acerbic, well-targeted comic attacks for the last 16 years. A support for Kate Tempest, Arthur Smith and The Fall, Thick Richard was also presenter of BBC 6 Music's Beat of the Day.
