Gerry Potter – Bingo Jesus and Old Willow Pantomime


Gerry Potter had been the compere for three solid days at Manchester Book Market Poetry Tent. It was a tough gig, not only was the weather appalling and the audience transient, but the range of performers who passed through the stage was the most eclectic imaginable; poets, performers and writers of all shapes, sizes, tone and complexities. Despite the severe curveball he’d been sent, Gerry handled it all like a trooper and only towards the very end of the last day could he be seen with head in hands at the point of despair. It was at this point he took a deep breath, gathered himself and took to the microphone to deliver this performance. It was the last set of the weekend and is a three part poem about two atheist tramps, Bingo Jesus and Old Willow Pantomime.

The following night Gerry launched his new book Planet Young on the occasion of his birthday. We realised that would make it exactly seven years to the day since we released his book Adult Entertainment, in the time when Gerry was terrorising audiences as the diva Chloe Poems. We hear that in seven years our bodies make a total transformation, not one single cell remaining from seven years before. So in that span, Chloe became Gerry.
