John Hegley

Interview: Rarely Asked Questions – John Hegley

Stand-up poet John Hegley is something of a legend. He has been around since the early days of the alternative comedy scene and with his erstwhile band The Popticians was championed by John Peel. So you could say he was a pioneer of comedy as the new rock and roll. Not that Hegley is very rock and roll. His poems tend to be about everyday things and also Keats, Daleks and soot. In particular he writes about wearing glasses and has been a lifelong advocate of spectacles over contact lenses.
