Sean Mahoney & Zia Ahmed went to the same school. Secondary. It’s called Hampstead but is in Cricklewood. Cricklewhaat. They’ve been in a few plays at Hampstead Theatre together & now gig a lot together doing spoken word. They’ve both done the Roundhouse Poetry Collective & last year did a show with their favourite poet (and Roundhouse Collective boss) polarbear. They’ve had about seven years to do a show together. aAt bornfree::fridays Sean will do bits of his boxing show and Zia will do bits of his C11 show. This is as close they have gotten. They are super excited!
