October 02, 2018 Clever Tykes

How a “yeah, why not?” attitude shaped a career in TV and comedy.

Phill Jupitus is a stand up and an improv comedian. He’s also an actor, a performance poet, a cartoonist and a podcaster. Phill was a team captain on the BBC 2 show "Never Mind the Buzzcocks" for 19 years. He regularly appears on other panels shows including QI and within the last month you’ve probably seen him on Dave!

In this episode we find out about Phill’s mercurial career doing largely whatever he felt like at the time, as well as the mindset behind it all. We learn about his early aspirations as well as how he broke into performance art and comedy, and what his mum makes of it all. Stay tuned for Phill’s number one pizza topping and how it turns out to be an analogy for life.
