Wherever I Lay My Hat, That's My Hat

You look just like me first girlfriend … do you want to be?’

I heard a clip of the very funny performance poet Hovis Presley on the radio a few weeks ago and tonight I finally got round to surfing around for more information. I was very annoyed that the first thing I found was his obituary. Turns out he died of a heart attack aged 44 in June 2005 after turning his back on the not-very-much fame he'd earned.

Watch him in action here. A breathtaking fusion of puns and poetry, and you must go see a doctor if it doesn't at least make you smile.
