Never Mind the Buzzcocks and QI star coming to Barnsley

Phill Jupitus is coming to The Civic this April.

Following his hugely successful tour of the UK in 2017, stand-up comedian, poet, improviser and TV star Phill Jupitus returns to The Civic this April with his acclaimed stand-up show Juplicity.

"… a true comic talent" Manchester Evening News

Watch in delight and/or horror as experienced funny man Jupitus drags laughs out of the chaos of his own life and the uncertain world that surrounds it. And by that world, we mean your world too.

Warning: Adult themes and situations, 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.

Phil Jupitus appears at The Civic as part of April Fools Comedy Festival, a town wide festival of laughs in Barnsley, with other acts including Morgan and West, John Robins and Stephen Bailey.
