Saturday 3rd October, John Clarke's Satirical Verse + open-mike!

This Saturday 3rd October it’s the John Clarke satirical verse event and open-mike at Perth Poetry Club, VIA ZOOM from THE MOON CAFÉ.

NOTE – THIS WILL BE A ZOOM EVENT ONLY. WE WILL BE ZOOMING FROM THE MOON BUT THERE WILL BE NO STAGE MIKE. Just a computer and a data projector, for this week.

Research by the late John Clarke (of Clarke & Dawe and Fred Dagg fame) clearly demonstrates that a great many of the world’s most famous poets were Australian.
