John Cooper Clarke shot to prominence in the 1970s as the original ‘people’s poet’ and became one of the most prolific artists of the Punk years. His unique poetry was put to music by producer Martin Hannett and a band of Mancunians, The Invisible Girls. Seminal tracks such as Beasley St and Evidently Chickentown featured on the album Snap Crackle and Bop, one of four hit 70/80s album releases.
His 1980s poetry collection 10 Years in An Open Necked Shirt featuring the lyrics to classic tracks from his albums and more, is one of the UKs biggest selling poetry collections of all time.
Since then his career has spanned cultures, audiences, art forms and continents. Today he performs purely as a stand up solo poet with his unique poetry show touring worldwide for over 15 years.
John’s 2018 poetry collection The Luckiest Guy Alive features 30 new poems including the favourites; I’ve Fallen In Love With My Wife and Get Back on Drugs you Fat F*ck.
Dr John Cooper Clarke’s 2019 autobiography, named after his most famous poem I Wanna Be Yours, (Macmillan), is a groundbreaking piece of literature. JCC goes into fascinating detail about his early life in Manchester leading up to punk superstardom, drug addiction and then the massive comeback as major poet he enjoys today.
JCC will once again be touring the world from March 2022 through until the end of the year.
