John’s new show is a breathtaking showcase of poetry and spoken work featuring pieces from his new collection, as well as his usual musings, chat, riffs and gags. This is John at his brilliant, and hilarious best – a chance to see a living legend at the top of his game.

The ‘people’s poet’ Dr. John Cooper Clarke has a career that has spanned cultures, audiences, art forms and continents. John's latest poetry collection The Luckiest Guy Alive was released worldwide in November 2018 via Picador/Macmillan. Featuring over 30 poems, it includes many of his adoring public's favourites such as; I've Fallen In Love With My Wife, Beasley Boulevard and Get Back on Drugs you Fat F*ck.

Today, JCC is as relevant and vibrant as ever and his influence just as visible on today’s 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.
