Dr John Cooper Clarke
One of the country’s most important alternative voices, JCC shot to prominence in the 1970s as the original ‘people’s poet’. Since then he’s warn many hats, including poet, film star, rock star, broadcaster, comedian and social commentator, while his influence in contemporary culture is as wide.
With a mix of classic verse, hilarious ponderings on modern life, good honest gags, riffs and chat, this is a chance to witness a living legend at the top of this game.
“I say to people, have you heard of John Cooper Clarke and if they say, yes, yeah he’s an absolute genius and you just go, ‘oh – OK, you’ve saved me a lot of time” Steve Coogan
