Punk poet, comedian, movie star and presenter, John Cooper Clarke (JCC), is coming to Inverness.
Regarded as Britain’s best loved and most important performance poet, JCC first made his mark in the 1970s, delivering biting, satirical, political and very funny verse, in a unique, rapid-fire style which resonated with the punk movement.
He toured with all the seminal bands including The Sex Pistols, The Clash and Buzzcocks, but began to draw large crowds in his own right. He released a massive collection of his poetry and words entitled, Ten Years In An Open Necked Shirt, which became the bestselling poetry book of the 1980s, and is reprinted every few years.
He now regularly features on television and radio as a presenter, performer and a socio-cultural commentator, but still averages 100 live shows a year worldwide. He’s due to play the Ironworks, Inverness on Friday, April 17.
