You're Probably Wondering Why I've Asked You Here...: Phill Jupitus
Phill Jupitus plays the part of three extraordinary characters and with the help of an inquisitive audience, we find out more about them.
The Late Vernon Herschel Harley is a legend of stage and screen who died at the age of 114 just last Thursday. He has worked with everybody in theatre and cinema and describes himself as “Quite lively for a dead chap.” and “An annecdote Gatling gun.”
The Late Kurt Schiffer was the ‘Korvettenkapitan’ of the U42B out of Hamburg part of the German Navy’s ‘Wolf Packs’, which were the scourge of the Atlantic shipping lanes. He died in 1944.
The Late Phill Jupitus died on June 24th 2052 on the eve of his 90th birthday.
Leave your preconceptions at the door but don’t forget to bring your curiosity.
“This show is a huge amount of fun and an impressive display of Jupitus’ skills” – The Scotsman
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 and 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.
Phill Jupitus was named in Ents24's top 20 hardest-working comedians 2017.
