Wolfe Sunday loved reading all the entries and with great difficulty has chosen the winners.
Marc Shinner was chosen as the overall winner because of how he demonstrated the dedication involved in keeping an Audacious beard.
The runners up for their very Audacious entries were Ruth Zorichak and Samm Smith.
A huge Audacious thank you to everyone who entered, we loved them all !
If you want to catch Wolfe Sunday he is performing next at the Fiddler’s elbow in Camden, London on the 25th September.
Marc Shinner ‘My beard makes people stop in awe, which sends them into a spiral of jealousy and self loathing due to the trenches of skin along their cold faces being too hostile to grow beautiful bristles. And then my alarm goes off, it’s 4am and the realisation that I have to drive 35 miles to work dawns on me, I shift myself too the edge of the bed, scratching my beard thinking “this needs a decent shampoo to sort it, I’ll work extra hours to afford it” the vicious cycle repeats, a whirlwind of alarms, dreams and beard scratching, and finally a day off where I go into a city and people stop in awe of my beard but as they talk to me they’re only making one sound over and over and I’m awake. It’s 4am.’
Ruth Zorichak ‘My beard is frankly more like fluff ,
But I don’t like my chin in the buff ,
As a woman I see that my beard just won’t be,
But to have one would bring so much glee!
I’m being completely audacious,
but the beard craze is really contagious,
My fiance Kevs beard is a joy
And it’s clearly a man’s not a boy,
It delights me all hours of the day,
He would love the soap if I may,
Then we’ll clean it and groom it and foam it and brush it and his audacious beard will be here to stay!’
Samm Smith ‘My beard may not be the longest, nor be the perfect shape. However it is still capable of being the center of attention during any conversation. It has its own gravitational field, pulling in general questions and compliments from anyone who glances at it. Once the questions have past there’s always those who ask to feel the extension of hair which grows from my face. They then fall silent in amazement due to the pure soft and smooth feel which is not commonly known to those beard hears. So they ask one more question: “what do you do to make your beard so soft?” Well non bearded one, I’ve use The Audacious Beard Co products everyday to keep this fluff in perfect order!’
