Phill Jupitus: Juplicity

Join stand-up comedian, poet, improviser, and TV stalwart Phill Jupitus for over an hour of tales, laughs and diversions. Watch in delight and/or horror as this experienced funny man drags laughs out of the chaos of his own life and the uncertain world that surrounds it. 

Adult themes and situations, but delivered childishly.

Phill became a familiar face when he started as team captain on BBC2’s pop quiz Never Mind The Buzzcocks in 1996,which went on to run for 19 years.Aside from Never Mind the Buzzcocks and live stand up shows all over the UK, he also appears as a regular guest on QI (BBC2) and Alan Davies As yet Untitled (Dave), and in 2012 returned to television stand-up for the first time since 2000 with an appearance on Live at the Apollo (BBC1).

On BBC Radio 4 Phill is a regular panellist of the award winning I’m Sorry I Haven’t a Clue and The Unbelievable Truth and was resident curator on The Museum of Curiosity. In addition, he has presented numerous radio documentaries including, Phill Jupitus’ Comic Strips, Calvin and Hobbes and The Man Who Bought Hendrix’s Stage.

Phill’s theatre work includes playing Bottom in the Bath Theatre Royal production of A Midsummer’s Night Dream, appearing alongside Jason Manford in the UK touring production of The Producers as Franz Liebkind, the West End production of Urinetown in the role of Caldwell B. Cladwell at the Apollo Theatre and his West End singing debut in 2009 when he played Edna Turnblad in the hit musical Hairspray at The Shaftesbury Theatre.

Multi award-winning Mock The Week regular Milton Jones headlines the show with a gag-packed set of absurd brilliance. The king of the one-liners continues to delight audiences across the UK with his utterly unique wordplay and very loud shirts.
Support comes from Time Out Comedy Award winner Jeff Innocent who is simply one of the best acts in the country and has been for the last ten years – his original, unique and razor sharp wit is unrivalled and described as like Alan Bennett writing an episode of Minder. Plus Pierre Hollins who delivers his hilarious gag driven brand of satire combined with the age-old art of British moaning! He will be accompanied by his trusty guitar to cover topics such as love, hate, sex, politics and bank holiday traffic!
Compere for the show is Dublin comedian Rory O’Hanlon with his hilarious and charming yarn spinning style that’ll tickle your funny bones from start to finish.

Simon Evans: Genius

Ever since he was a small boy, all Evans really wanted was to be recognised by the world as a man of genius. He has, until now, remained thwarted. The world seems increasingly indifferent to true genius of any kind, let alone Evans'. Endlessly distracted by the trivial, we allow the classical tools of grammar, logic and rhetoric to lie unregarded in the shed of consciousness, rusting to a picturesque hue that would actually look really great on Instagram. But which filter? Hmmm… 

'Super-sharp wit' (Time Out). - 'Please clap' (Jeb Bush).
