Make no bones about it � Jawdance is the top open-mic in town. Whether your poetry is sternum of humerus; whether you�re � er � male or femur � errr � ulna... clavicle...

But there�s so much more to Jawdance than silly puns: it�s got a charismatic host, quirky films, barnstorming guest acts and a consistently excellent open-mic section. And you can be part of it! Jawdance: come along and knock 'em for coccyx! Arrive early at Rich Mix�s atmospheric bar in Shoreditch to secure an open mic slot, or just come along to enjoy some fantastic spoken word.
