TO HELEN BACK 1What do you do when you have a best mate who is so sad he might die?

 Especially considering up until now your friendship has mostly consisted of a mutual appreciation of 90s hip hop, borderline alcoholism and finding creative ways to call each other d*ckhead.

Byron is a bipolar performance artist, Dave only communicates in insults. Together they must find a way to fix Byron’s broken soul before it’s too late. Funny, tragic and shockingly honest, this is a true story of hopelessness and friendship told by two men on a desperate quest for happiness.

Who is Byron Vincent?


Byron Vincent was (poorly) educated within the in the cloying conurbation of various northern sink estates.

His flowery name and love of language ensured that his journey was a challenging one. Never a defeatist he fought back with poetry. This was a terrible strategy and he regularly got his head kicked in.Byron is a regular at many of the UK’s most prestigious music and literary events including Cheltenham, Oxford Literature Festival, Glastonbury, Latitude Festival and Bristol Poetry Festival.

He has performed at venues as diverse as London’s Whitechapel Gallery and Shambala Festival’s Bedouin Tent.He’s won nine poetry slams including Shambala, Secret Garden and the BBC Manchester Literary Festival.

He is currently in the throes of preparing for two collaborative national tours as well as being involved in numerous live literature, writing, film and radio project
