Dr John Cooper Clarke – The Luckiest Guy Alive Tour

Vicar Street, Tuesday 19th March 2019

Dr John Cooper Clarke's The Luckiest Guy Alive is the latest collection from the original ‘people's poet’. From the Attack of the Fifty Foot Woman, to a hymn to the seductive properties of the pie – by way of hand-grenade haikus, machine-gun ballads and a meditation on the loss of Bono's leather pants – The Luckiest Guy Alive collects audience favourites and brand-new poems to show JCC as relevant and vibrant as ever.

Aside from his trademark ‘look' continuing to resonate with fashionistas young and old, and his poetry included on the UK national curriculum syllabus, his effect on modern music is huge with The Arctic Monkeys putting I Wanna Be Yours to music on their acclaimed A:M album.

“The godfather of British performance poetry” – Daily Telegraph.
