John Cooper Clarke
John Cooper Clarke has announced details of his highly anticipated show at the Palace Theatre, Manchester, taking place on May 24th.
It has been over 3 years since JCC performed in Manchester, and the Palace Theatre provides a suitably iconic venue for an iconic performer. The venue was personally chosen by JCC and he is thrilled to return to Manchester, and especially to the Palace Theatre. It was here in the early '60s that he watched Bob Hope perform and decided to try and follow a life in showbiz.
Britain’s best loved and most important performance poet, John Cooper Clarke is as vital now as he was in the '70s. His biting, satirical, political and very funny verse, delivered in a unique rapid-fire performance style, resonated with the punk movement and he toured with all the seminal bands, from The Sex Pistols to The Clash, until he soon began to draw large crowds in his own right.
John Cooper Clarke is as relevant and vibrant as ever, and his influence just as visible on pop culture. His influence can also be heard in the satirical and keen social observations of artists such as Plan B and the Arctic Monkeys.
As well as his regular TV appearances on the likes of Have I Got News For You, Never Mind The Buzzcocks, Would I Lie To You and 8 Out of 10 Cats Does Countdown, John also host 6 Music shows and his own BBC Radio 4 Show 'John Cooper Clarke Live at the BBC'.
