Poentry Summary

Poentry by Samantha Baines

Award-winning comedian and actress Samantha Baines likes poetry and thinks it shouldn't just be for po-faced people. Enjoy this silly collection of poems about life, amazing women and the very strangest news stories from the last few years (with any face you so wish). Revel in the comedy lines, the rhymes and the `really did that rhyme' times from one of comedy's brightest stars.

About Samantha Baines

Samantha Baines is an award-winning comedian and actress and published poet now. Samantha's TV and film career has seen her either exclusively playing cockney women in the 1950's (Netflix's The Crown, Call the Midwife and A Royal Night Out) or being a bit over the top in comedy shows (Lee Nelson's Well Funny People, Sunny D, Pop Sludge Bucket, Hank Zipzer, Doctors). Samantha tours the UK performing her own brand of science stand up comedy (with puns) and was a UK Pun Championship Finalist 2017 - the first woman in the history of the competition to perform in the final! She's also a What the Frock! Best Newcomer Winner 2015 and a Funny Women Finalist 2014. Her debut Edinburgh Fringe show 1 Woman, A Dwarf Planet and 2 Cox in 2016 enjoyed a completely sold out run at the Pleasance Courtyard in Edinburgh, got 4 and 5 star reviews and had extra shows added due to popular demand. Not content with being funny for your eyes, Samantha likes to create giggles for your ears on BBC Radio 4, BBC Radio London, Virgin Radio, BBC Radio 2 and whoever else will have her. She also writes for Time Out, Stylist, The Guardian, Huffington Post and Standard Issue and has her own poetry blog. When she's not doing all that Samantha likes to have an earl grey tea (in her pyjamas) at home with her two cats: Victoria and Albert, who insist on sitting on her laptop, especially whilst she is trying to send a really important tweet (probably to Brian Cox).
