The Carpenters Experience is a show which pays tribute to Karen and Richard Carpenter.
In a vain attempt at bourgeois credibility, Manchester's sharp-dressed, sharp-delivering punk poet Lenny, changed his name to John Cooper Clarke and embarked on a ?polysyllabic excursion though Thrillsville'! Clad in the slum chic of the hipster, he issued the slang anthems of the zip age in the desperate esperanto of bop. Expect a mix of hilarious anecdotes of life in a Northern town interspersed with machine-gun fast delivery of some of his best poems. If you think poetry is dull and boring, or posh and erudite - you haven't seen JCC!

Away in a manger, no crib for a bed... Gold, Frankincense and Myrrh. A donkey, a camel and a new born lamb. A tiny baby, wrapped in swaddling clothes lying in a makeshift bed in a dilapidated farmyard outbuilding. But enough about what Stu's bought Howard for Christmas. With the usual mix of silly songs, pitiful puppetry and more Biblical befuddlement than you can shake a figgy pudding at, Living Spit's Nativity promises to be a cornucopia of Christmassy comedy that you'll never forget!
After their triumphant take on Frankenstein and A Christmas Carol, Howard and Stu are back to tackle the second greatest Christmas story ever told. Yes, that's right folks, Living Spit are doing the NATIVITY!
Familiar to TV audiences for his memorable comic creations such as Billy Bleach, Dave Angel and Competitive Dad in the phenomenally successful The Fast Show (BBC2), Simon is widely considered to be one of the UK's most talented character comedians and comedy actors.
