Dr John Cooper Clarke

We're *bleep* chuffed to announce the original punk poet, the legendary Dr John Cooper Clarke, is bringing his *bleep* to the *bleep* Fling stage. Also known as the Bard of Salford, he shot to prominence in the 1970s as the original people’s poet, and emerged as one of the leading voices of youth culture. Thanks to his biting, satirical, political and very funny verse, delivered in a unique rapid-fire performance style, he became a seminal influence on the punk movement. His impact far-transcended that cultural moment though, and John became the world’s leading alternative literary figure, whose work is loved and recognised on a global scale. Today, John Cooper Clarke is as relevant and vibrant as ever, and his influence just as visible on pop culture. With TV appearances on Have I Got News For You, Never Mind The Buzzcocks and Would I Lie To You, his influence can also be heard in the satirical and keen social observations of artists such as Plan B and the Arctic Monkeys.
