Event description

Description

To celebrate moving into their new premises The Poetry Bookshop brings the original ‘people’s poet’ John Cooper Clarke to Hay - Poet; Movie star; Rock star; TV & radio presenter; Comedian; Social & cultural commentator.

Dr John Cooper Clarke shot to prominence in the 1970s. 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 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. Such collaborations mean that John has been involved in 2 global number 1 albums in the last 2 years - 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 live show is described as 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!
