In celebration of his new autobiography I Wanna Be Yours, the people's poet Dr John Cooper Clarke's live show is a breathtaking rollercoaster of poetry, spoken word, off-the-wall chat, riffs and wicked stories from his incredible life. Poet Laureate of Punk, rock star, fashion icon and The Bard of Salford – Dr John Cooper Clarke is a phenomenon and one of Britain's most beloved and influential writers and performers. Joined by special guests, his show is mesmerisingly brilliant and 'still as funny as f*ck' (LouderThanWar.com).
