Performing at the Camden Centre on 18 June 2015.
Janine's poetic performances.
Funny, biting and original.
Brilliant. Her poem 'Night Tube' is Auden-esque.

Janine Booth is a 1980s poet who just happens to be a 2010s poet too: her vitriol and stage-presence are, if anything, more finely-honed than they were back then (she's put the years in, after all) and it's great to see her winning over new audiences every time she performs. And even better, she's not simply resurrecting past glories but continues to produce new material all the time. Highly recommended!
Russell Thompson, Apples and Snakes
A one-woman riot.
Janine Booth brings humour to her politics. Her poetry is passionate and on point, and audiences are won over by her down to earth manner and wry witticisms. Don't let the bastards grind you dour.
As ever, Janine’s poetry charmed, wowed and inspired a packed venue. I’m always amazed how she gains and holds the attention of an audience who’ve come to watch loud music, and immediately turns them into fans. Love her to bits.
Cassandra Fox, Loud Women
Janine Booth came to Sunday Slips and blew our mind. Her words are full of honesty and power, she welcomes communication and growth! Janine shook our souls and moved the dialogue of the night to a deeper meaning. She always has a home in Berlin at Sunday Slips. Thank You Janine Booth, from the family at FREUDIAN slip club.
Stormed my Glastonwick festival in 2015, will go down equally well at a union rally, a poetry festival, a punk gig, or anywhere where people appreciate intelligent, angry, funny words.

Side splitting and hard hitting.

Janine Booth is one of the best spoken-word artists around and her characteristic humour, laced with biting truths and social commentary, never fails to move hearts and minds.
