HOW I CAME TO BE WHERE I NEVER WAS- Jonny Fluffypunk
Jonny Fluffypunk grew up in suburban nowhere. In 1984, he was fifteen. This is a story about trying to find yourself, when you find yourself somewhere you don’t belong. It’s about unrequited love, John Peel and the importance of a good record shop. And it’s also about trains and memory and letting go. This is a lo-fi stand-up spoken word theatre show for anyone who has ever loved, owned a vinyl record or just been alive.
Produced in partnership with Strike A Light and Inn Crowd
Acute social observation, intricate humour, surreal fantasy, sharp irony and wit- The Independent
Sublime…well-crafted, tender and life-affirming. Highly Recommended- FringeReview
This man truly relishes language. Go see him– Tony Allen (‘the godfather of alternative comedy’)
Stand-up poet, give-up musician and Sustainable Nihilist Jonny Fluffypunk has been dragging his art around the poetry and alternative cabaret circuits for over 20 years. Fiercely DIY, and by turns funny, wistful and oddly moving, Jonny’s work is both a celebration of the beauty in the mundane and an elaborate cry for help. Two collections of writings are published by Burning Eye Books, and he has toured several full-length solo shows, gleefully taking theatre off the beaten track. He is currently developing his first show for children, and a new show about hope is right this moment gestating somewhere in his heart. When not doing stuff on a stage, Jonny runs workshops with anyone and everyone who likes writing and speaking words.
