PREVIEW: Phill Jupitus @ The Maltings, Berwick
Posted on September 25th 2017 by Whats on Northeast
Warning: this show contains adult themes. Delivered childishly.
Comedian, poet, improviser and TV mainstay Phill Jupitus has become a very recognisable face across a variety of disciplines since he first began to pop up on our screens on the likes of ‘Never Mind The Buzzcocks.’ He’s a regular on BBC Radio 4, being a regular panellist on ‘I’m Sorry I Haven’t A Clue’ and ‘The Unbelievable Truth,’ as well as taking to the stage and tackling the likes of ‘A Midsummer Night’s Dream’ and ‘The Producers.’ He’s even played Edna Turnblad in ‘Hairspray’!
It’s safe to say then that Phill is a bit of a British comedy legend at this point then, and now he’s back on the road doing what he does best: getting a chuckle out of people. His new show ‘Juplicity’ is heading to The Maltings on 27th September, and it’s set to be another corker. Well, he hopes so anyway.
For the show, Phill’s mined the chaos of his own life and the uncertainty of the world surrounding it, providing an hour of tales, laughs and diversions from it in the process. He’s doing it all as his word-slinging, fast-thinking alter-ego Porky The Poet, taking on everything from religion and dieting to politics and hipsters with his ultra-sharp pencil.
Whatever he casts his eye to, Phill always delivers a belter of a show.
