About Poor Queen by Mab Jones:
Mab Jones is Wales’s answer to a post-modern Pam Ayers. Like Pam her verse is light, accessible and always intend to amuse but Poor Queen is packed with dark humour and Mab is frequently far more bawdy than Pam would ever dare to be. Mab Jones is a much loved performer across the UK, she regularly appears as the support act to Phill Jupitus and performs at major festivals such as Glastonbury and Lattitude.
She projects the frustrations of ordinary people and everyday life in a straight talking rhythmic blast of comedy. Be prepared for your ribs to ache after reading this book.
Mab Jones is a comic, poet, and performer from Cardiff. Her fifth ever gig was at the BBC Radio 4 National Poetry Slam in London after she got squeezed into the Welsh regional heat following her 3rd open mic reading. Since then, she has performed over 700 times, at most major festivals, at Latitude, at the Comedy Store, on BBC Radio, in the US and Japan, and more. She has won various awards and accolades along the way. She is also Resident Poet in the National Botanic Garden of Wales.
