Product description

About the Author

John Hegley was born in 1953 in Newington Green, and moved to Luton at an early age. After leaving school he worked as a bus conductor and social security clerk until going to Bradford University where he eked out a grant by working as a nurse in the local mental hospital. He has worked with two children's theatre groups, Interaction and Soapbox, and began his highly successful cabaret career at the notoriously tough Comedy Store in 1980. John Hegley is a regular sell-out at The Edinburgh Festival. He has performed at the Montreal ComedyFestival, the USA Comedy Festival in Aspen, with Ulrika Jonsson & Anita Dobson in The Pajama Game and currently on BBC R4's "Hearing With Hegley". He lives in North London.

Format: Paperback
john hegley is a fantastic poet... if you ever thought that you didn't like poetry or that it was a bit too heavy going then try reading some of this! its surreal yet very simple poetry set in incredibly real situations and very very funny! this book is a good introduction to hegley and affordable so i recommend everyone reading it.

Having heard John Hegley's laconic pronouncements on the wireless, I bought this book but was disappointed. The book comes across as a series of disjointed remarks with the odd rhyme thrown in.

As a standup, Hegley is quite amusing, and has an appealing persona. But written down his bons mots are strangely lifeless. They resemble bits of paper strewn about an untidy adolescent's bedroom. Your first impulse is to reach for the vacuum cleaner.

Bought for me as a birthday present, I loved this collection of poems. I wear glasses myself so I could identify immediately with John Hegley's sentiments - particularly when I found out that I'm not the only person to have no interest in wearing contact lenses (make sure you read "Lying about your eyesight"). If you enjoy poetry that plays with words but at the same time tells a story about the everyday things in life, then this is for you.
