    Britain’s best loved poet Dr John Cooper Clarke is heading to the London Palladium on Sat 24 November 2018.

    The show is a sensational showcase of spoken word – a chance to see John perform material both classic and brand new as he delves into his vast back catalogue, as well as his prolific collection of new work, all read from his trademark battered notebooks, delivered in John’s legendary, rapid fire style and iconic Salford drawl. Combine this John’s hilarious observations, gags and off the wall chat and it adds up to the chance to see a living legend at the top of his game.
