Storms Coming: Tim Minchin’s wickedly good beat poem

Inside the confines of an unassuming London flat, a dinner party plays host to musician and comedian Tim Minchin as he argues with a hippy named Storm. Who would have thought a nine minute beat poem was the perfect vehicle for such an encounter, but it really works and makes for quite an impact. The animation of the typography helps to highlight Minchin’s wordplay, making nine minutes of light jazz fly by. It will be the best nine minute beat poem you hear all year.
