Born in Guyana and raised in Acton, West London, Godfrey Duncan aka TUUP (The Unprecedented Unorthodox Preacher) has been a professional storyteller since 1981, when he joined Ben Haggarty and Daisy Keable to form the 'West London Storytelling Unit'. He is truly an elder of the storytelling revival in Britain. His style of total improvisation, fabulous capacity for mimicry and ear for a wild story is outstanding. He has a deeply sensitive spirit, which means that he can sometimes create very moving spontaneous poetry. He has travelled the world, telling stories all over Europe and in Northern and Southern Africa. He has performed in many countries in Asia and both North and South America in his role as a creative lyricist, poet, percussionist and vocalist with the highly influential dance music collective, Transglobal Underground.
