Why go and see it?

This is John at his brilliant, and hilarious best – a chance to see a living legend at the top of his game.

The ‘people’s poet’ Dr. John Cooper Clarke has announced his 2019 schedule to date. John’s live tour begins in February 2019 with shows in major theatres around the UK, USA and Ireland. In March, the Doctor will be following up his sell out 2018 New York shows with a three-night run at Joe’s Pub in the Big Apple. His full tour of the UK takes in all of the British Isles - England, Scotland, Northern Ireland and Wales, as well as a series of dates in the Republic of Ireland making this a 42 date tour so far.

Production shot

John’s much anticipated new poetry collection (his first in almost 40 years) was recently released in the UK with Picador Macmillan receiving great critical acclaim, and topping the poetry charts. “The Luckiest Guy Alive” is out on hardback and features 43 previously unpublished poems from classics like Hire Car and She’s Got a Metal Plate in her Head, to some of John’s newest work, including reflections on what might happen should his Chimpanzee butler get access to a straight razor in “Shave Off” and the plight of the driver via The Motorist. The paperback is due to be released in the Autumn.
