About the Author

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, 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 the national curriculum syllabus, his effect on modern music is huge. The Doctor's 2018 show, touring across the UK, USA, Canada and 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 his game.

Reviews

"John Cooper Clarke is one of Britain's outstanding poets. His anarchic punk poetry has thrilled people for decades . . . long may his slender frame and spiky top produce words and deeds that keep us on our toes and alive to the wonders of the world." --Sir Paul McCartney


"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
"A poet who writes about darkness and decay but makes people laugh, a human cartoon, a gentleman punk, a man who has stayed exactly the same for thirty years but never grown stale. John Cooper Clarke is an original." --Scotsman
"There are a legion of new young poets who rightly pay homage to Cooper Clarke." --Independent
