A poet, a comedian and a dab hand at the ukulele, Tim Clare is a one man variety show. His debut collection mixes the surreal with the satirical. Pub Stuntman takes in celebrity zombies, dandified identity fraudsters and a gaggle of middle class girls ('so much richer than dustmen, yet poorer than earls'). Both jaunty and dark, Clare is like his eponymous Pub Stuntman an unabashed show-off who you can t help but admire for his verve.

Review:

Searingly Unpretentious and grin-inducingly well-expressed, Clare's wisdom tears the modern world a new one. Just brilliant. --Tim Key

It is the little turns of comedy that make Pub Stuntman such a breath of fresh air and such an enjoyable and easy collection to read. There is none of the heavy-handed 'ULTIMATE SOUL PAIN' that Clare mocks, and he is the polar opposite of the poet who, in the collection's final poem, 'wears his condescension / like a giant gilt-edged monocle.' --Sabotage Reviews
