Presented by The Cookie Comedy Club, Dr John Cooper Clarke’s latest spoken word show promises to be full of unique wordplay, glib jokes and brand-new material. The phrase living legend is bandied about probably too often, but this particular punk poet has been on the scene for decades and never ceases to be relevant – even to the point that Alex Turner and the Arctic Monkeys used his poem I Wanna Be Yours for the lyrics to their song of the same name. Catch him and his sunglasses while you can.

Dr John Cooper Clarke is at Dryden Street Social on the 8th February.

Dan Wallbank has been floating around the Leicester comedy scene for five years and the music scene for ten. He's the founder of Comedy and Cocktails at Manhattan34, host of the Firebug Pop Quiz and creator of Instant Nostalgia, the podcast that reviews itself.
