Phill Jupitus is the Star of ‘Buzzcocks’ on BBC2 and now takes the lead in ‘Spamalot’ touring the UK.
Phill is an English stand-up and improv comedian, actor, performance poet, cartoonist and podcaster.
Jupitus has been a team captain on BBC Two’s popular music quiz Never Mind the Buzzcocks since its inception in 1996 and also appears regularly as a guest on several other panel shows, including QI and BBC Radio 4’s I’m Sorry I Haven’t a Clue.
If you’re into radio read Phill’s remarkably honest book about how the BBC operates – it’s not pretty!
Belfield and Jupitus re-unite for another chat……
During the 2008 Major League Baseball season, Jupitus presented a feature during the seventh inning stretch of Channel Five’s featured Sunday night game.
Each week he would read a section or quote from one of his favourite baseball-related books. He is a fan of the Boston Red Sox and has their logo tattooed on his arm.
On 13–14 February 2009 Jupitus co-hosted the first BadMovieClub on Twitter.
At midnight exactly, over 2,000 Twitter users simultaneously pressed ‘Play’ on the film The Happening and continued to ‘tweet’ whilst watching, creating a collective viewing experience that generated 40,000 ‘tweets’ in under two hours.
The first showing took place at 9:00pm, hosted by Graham Linehan.
On 9 September 2009 Jupitus narrated a half-hour documentary on BBC Radio 4 about the comic strip Calvin and Hobbes created by Bill Watterson.
On 6 October 2010 Phill (along with Emma Kennedy) hosted a special comedy evening at the Canterbury Animation Festival ‘Anifest’.
He will be returning to Anifest 2011 on 1 October 2011.
