Jonny Fluffypunk

An economic refugee from the home counties, Jonny began his career spitting vicious political verse between bands at punk gigs until cured by a West Country shaman. Now he ‘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.

Equally at home on cabaret, poetry and alternative comedy stages and stridently anti-competition in both the Arts and life in general, Jonny is- to his own disgust- winner of countless poetry slams and has come second three times in the UK National All-Stars slam. He has two volumes of poetry, prose and threadbare philosophy- ‘The Sustainable Nihilists’ Handbook’ and ‘Poundland Rimbaud’- out on the Burning Eye imprint, and his solo no-fi stand-up spoken word show ‘Man Up, Jonny Fluffypunk- One Man’s Struggle with Late-Onset Responsibility’ spent 2015 touring around the garden sheds, allotments and summer houses of Britain in a blatant championing of homespun DIY culture.
