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. In 1984 he was fifteen.
This is a story about being the first punk in the village and the only trainspotter in eyeliner. About unrequited love and youth clubs and John Peel and the forgotten gods of small record shops; about making your own myth and letting go, and a million everyday life-changing moments in the back-end of nowhere.
An energetic and engaging solo performance fusing elements of theatre, storytelling, comedy, ‘stand-up poetry’ (think John Cooper-Clarke not John Keats) and even a bit of ukulele. It's a funny and nostalgic autobiographical tale of growing up, not fitting in and finally finding some sort of purpose.
Lo-fi stand-up spoken word theatre for anyone who has listened to late-night radio under the bedcovers, or fallen in love, or just been alive.
“Whether choosing his correct towel, wearing his Mother’s underwear or reciting an ode to a dead trout, Jonny does it with a sublime mix of grace, verve, clean green jittery wit and a touch of punk rock pizzazz. The man is a genius!” Dan Cockrill, Bang Said The Gun
“Acute social observation, intricate humour, surreal fantasy, sharp irony and wit… and England’s most pretentious moustache” The Independent
