TickeT gig of The week

The Irish Times - Friday - The Ticket - - News -

There were sev­eral laughs a minute at John Cooper Clarke’s spo­ken word/po­etry gig in Whe­lan’s, Dublin, on Wed­nes­day night. The ap­pre­cia­tive au­di­ence was com­posed of many grey heads, but also a few Arc­tic Mon­keys fans (Cooper Clarke is an oft-cited in­flu­ence). And rather than re­ly­ing lazily on his ex­cel­lent early ma­te­rial, this pop­u­lar poet prefers to serve up fresh help­ings of his hi­lar­i­ous po­lit­i­cal in­cor­rect­ness. Ev­ery line a zinger. Words: Tony Clay­ton-Lea. Pho­to­graph: Dara Mac Dó­naill
