Dr John Cooper Clarke
Poet; Movie star; Rock star; TV & radio presenter; Comedian; Social & cultural commentator.
John Cooper Clarke shot to prominence in the 1970s as the original peoples poet.
Since then his career has spanned cultures, audiences, art forms and continents.
Today, JCC is as relevant and vibrant as ever, and his influence just as visible on todays pop culture. Aside from his trademark look continuing to resonate with fashionistas young and old, and his poetry included on national curriculum syllabus, his effect on modern music is huge.
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 2 recent global number 1 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
His latest show, touring across the UK, USA, Canada & Australasia, is a mix of classic verse, extraordinary new material, hilarious ponderings on modern life, good honest gags, riffs and chat - 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
