This is a story about being the first punk in the village and the only trainspotter in eyeliner. About unrequited love and youth club and John Peel and the forgotten gods of small record shops. An energetic and uplifting show about the small things in life, fusing elements of theatre, storytelling, comedy, ‘stand-up poetry’ (think John Cooper-Clarke not John Keats) and even a bit of ukulele.
How do you find yourself when you find yourself where you don’t belong? Jonny Fluffypunk grew up in the far-flung, forgotten reaches of outer suburbia. This is a show about trains and memory and letting go. This is a new lo-fi stand-up spoken word theatre show for anyone who has ever loved, owned a vinyl record or just been alive.
“Acute social observation, intricate humour, surreal fantasy, sharp irony and wit.”
“Sublime… well-crafted, tender and life-affirming. Highly recommended.”
“This man truly relishes language. Go see him.”
Tony Allen (‘the godfather of alternative comedy’)
