Rob Barratt

I am a Dudley-born comic poet, humourist and singer from North Cornwall. I write all my own material.

In recent years I have appeared at folk, literature and arts festivals all over the UK and in Australia and Ireland. I am proud to say that I have never won any awards for anything because I don’t enter competitions. But I did win an Airfix kit for winning the 50 yard dash at Netherton Gala, Dudley, when I was about eight in 1962. But I never liked Airfix. Oh yes, and I won £10 on the Premium Bonds last year.
