John Hegley

John Hegley was born in 1953 in Newington Green, and moved to Luton at an early age. After leaving school he worked as a bus conductor and social security clerk, until he went to Bradford University, eking out his grant by working as a nurse in a local mental hospital.

He has worked with two children"s theatre groups, "Interaction" and "Soapbox", and began his highly successful career at the notoriously tough comedy store in 1980.

His first notable media exposure was the John Peel sessions (Radio One) with Popticians in 1983/4, with songs about spectacles and the misery of human existence.

After publishing "Glad to Wear Glasses" in 1990 another six titles followed filled with verse, prose, drawings drama and photographs of potatoes, and the CD/Cassette "Saint and Blurry".

In 2000, John received an honorary Arts Doctorate from Luton University and had his most notable live engagement in a women"s prison, Medellin, Columbia.
