Never miss another 'Phill Jupitus' show
Sassy Knack: Phill Jupitus
Now television is pretty much done with him because his palm crystal turned red, Phill Jupitus is enjoying the visceral thrill of live stand-up performing once more. In a user-friendly teatime slot, old man Jupitus will tell you things which have happened to him, but will exaggerate wildly. He will also sing. Don’t panic. He was in Hairspray. It’s in his wheelhouse. When you see it, this show will be his third of the day. So you’ll be able to gauge, very quickly, how well the others went. There might be biscuits. Might not.
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 featured in Ents24's Hardest Working Comedians list in 2018 and 2017.
