Stand Down: Phill Jupitus
The Edinburgh Festival Fringe is the biggest arts festival in the world. During August, the Royal Mile becomes the city's most colourful and exciting artery when the vibrant theatre and street performers become the face of the festival, with tourists flocking from the world over to queue up for a glimpse of some bohemian mastery.
During the festival the Royal Mile is pedestrianised and completely closed to traffic. Performers from far and wide pour into Edinburgh to fire throw, sword swallow, try a new tune, or chain themselves to themselves! A wheelin' and spinning carnivale world comes to life in Edinburgh when August hits.
See www.edfringe.com for further information.
This popular stand-up and TV comedian is well-known for his appearances on the pop music quiz show Never Mind The Buzzcocks. His career as a performer began in 1984 when he quit his job as a civil servant to follow a new direction as a performance poet on the alternative comedy circuit and supporting bands such as The Style Council and The Housemartins. During the late '80s he worked with Billy Bragg, directing videos for both Bragg and Kirsty MacColl. Phill has an abiding love and in-depth knowledge of popular music, particularly ska, bluebeat and rhythm & blues. His hugely successful standup tours have included Jedi, Steady, Go and Quadrophobia, and he has worked extensively on radio, variously as a contributor, panellist and presenter. He has also toured as part of The Blockheads line-up.
