SOME PRESS QUOTES ABOUT NICK TOCZEK
On his performance poetry:
“The most exciting and visual performer we have this side of Benjamin Zephaniah” – NME.
“The greatest success was without doubt ‘Mr Dynamite’, the Englishman Nick Toczek whose performance of all-round writings exploded like a firework.” – German daily Neue Presse (reviewing an appearance at Frankfurt Bookfair)
On his stand-up comedy:
“See him if you can. He’s brilliant.” – The Stage.
On his children’s poetry books:
“A combination of straight-hitting humour and verbal dexterity. It is the well-honed work of a performance poet – crackling with rhythms, raps, rhymes and repetitions that beg to be read aloud and savoured for sound as well as amusing storylines.” - The Times Educational Supplement.
