Sam Berkson AKA angry sam

"Nowadays I write poetry that attempts to find the political in the personal and the personal in the political."

Performing poetry since 2002, Sam Berkson has toured the UK and performed at festivals from Latitude, to Edinburgh, to Hay-on-Wye, Secret Garden Party and Bestival.

He is the host of the much lauded 'Hammer and Tongue' poetry slam.

“Angry Sam kills the crowd softly with rare wit and a laidback style that softens the knife wounds left by his acid political poetics and searing urban imagery.” – Martin Daws,Poetica

“Sam Berkson’s poetry captures the moving margins of Hackney gentrification” – The Hackney Citizen
