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.

Today, John is as relevant and vibrant as ever, and his influence just as visible on today’s pop culture. His influence can be heard within the keen social observations of the Arctic Monkeys and Plan B. These collaborations mean that John has been involved in two recent global number one albums - with The Arctic Monkeys putting one of John's best loved poems, I Wanna Be Yours, to music on their critically acclaimed A:M album. 

This show is a mix of verse, extraordinary new material and hilarious ponderings on modern life, good honest gags, riffs and chat -  come and witness him at the top of his game.
