Dr John Cooper Clarke shot to prominence in the 1970s as the original ‘people’s poet’.
Since then his career has spanned cultures, audiences, art forms and continents.
Apart from his trademark ‘look’ continuing to resonate with fashionistas young and old, and his poetry being included on the national curriculum syllabus, his effect on modern music is huge.
His latest show is a mix of classic verse, extraordinary new material, hilarious ponderings on modern life, good honest gags, riffs and chat.
