Man up, Jonny Fluffypunk

Man up, Jonny Fluffypunk 

Coffee-house layabout, armchair revolutionary and poet, Jonny Fluffypunk has become a dad. Who is he to shape a young life? A funny, off-the-wall and poignant lo-fi stand-up spoken-word theatre show about big dreams and little victories, about fatherhood and finding the hero within, however unpromising the exterior.

Warning! Performance contains sock puppets and references to anarcho-syndicalism.

Part of an ongoing ‘tour of unusual spaces’. A flagrant championing of DIY spirit that has seen Jonny perform in garden sheds, living rooms, disused toilets, libraries, an art gallery and a railway goods shed. It’s small, it’s intimate and it’ll be fun. Sometimes, there is cake for all!

Reviews

**** Fringe Guru

Sublime…well-crafted, tender and life-affirming. Highly recommended” Fringe Review 

Acute social observation, intricate humour, surreal fantasy, sharp irony and wit… and England’s most pretentious moustache.” The Independent

This man truly relishes language. Go see him!” Tony Allen (‘the godfather of alternative comedy’)

About Jonny Fluffypunk

An economic refugee from the Home Counties, stand-up poet, sit-up storyteller and give-up musician, Jonny Fluffypunk has been dragging his art around the poetry, comedy and alternative cabaret circuits for over 10 years. A multiple slam champion who hates competition in the arts and an outspoken voice for anarchy, peace and bicycles, Jonny ‘does’ poetry that deftly fuses bittersweet autobiography, political disillusionment and surreal whimsy in an act which has established him as a firm favourite at festivals, arts centres and housing benefit offices up and down the country. His slim volume The Sustainable Nihilists’ Handbook is published by Burning Eye Books.

Jonny is also co-host of the West Country’s pop-up poetry gig Hip Yak Poetry Shack and host of Stroud’s Mr Fluffypunk’s Penny Gaff, bringing obscure art to the masses.
