London Wonderground 2013 - Tongue Fu: Phill Jupitus, Ross Sutherland, Katie Bonna, Richard Marsh, Chris Redmond
The UK’s sharpest poets, storytellers and comedians perform with jaw-dropping improvised soundtracks and films from the genre hopping Tongue Fu Band and East London design studio CR&D.
One of London’s liveliest and largest spoken word shows, it is a riotous experiment in live literature, music, film and improvisation.
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.
