Edinburgh Festival Fringe: You're Probably Wondering Why I’ve Asked You Here… : Phill Jupitus
U Boat Captain, Welsh porn star, Dutch roadie or noted broadcaster and comedian? Like Camberwick Green, you're never sure who will be coming out of the box.
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.
