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

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, his slim volume The Sustainable Nihilists’ Handbook is published by Burning Eye Books and he has recently premiered his solo show ‘Man Up, Jonny Fluffypunk’ to great acclaim.
