    Bakewell Town Hall

    Following his hugely successful tour of the UK in 2017, stand-up comedian, poet, improviser and TV stalwart Phill Jupitus will be taking his acclaimed stand-up show JUPLICITY to Bakewell Town Hall on Friday 30th November.

    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 yourworld 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 Buzzcocksin 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 winningI’m Sorry I Haven’t a Clue and The Unbelievable Truthand 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.
