This Edinburgh Fringe, Phill Jupitus truth bombs his way through an hour of laughs, daily. The clown-extraordinaire has been on Nevermind the Buzzcocks since television was first invented in 1925, but he’s so much more than a gold mine of pop quiz trivia and the UK’s greatest beard-face. In his new show, Jupitus rips out his beating heart and staples it to his sleeve in front of a mesmerised crowd of shocked and delighted fans. Hysterical? Sure. Unmissable? Who cares whether The Guardian thinks so. You do. That’s why you’re buying a ticket right now.

Aside from living on the set of Never Mind the Buzzcocks and performing live, Phill currently appears as a regular guest on QI (BBC2), and in 2012 returned to television stand-up for the first time since 2000 with an appearance on Live at the Apollo (BBC1). While on BBC Radio 4 Phill appears regularly on the award winning News Quiz, I’m Sorry I haven’t A Clue and The Unbelievable Truth in addition to presenting work on such shows as Phill Jupitus’ Comic Strips, The Man Who Bought Hendrix’s Stage and Mr. Jupitus In the World Of Steampunk.

In the autumn of 2009 Phill rampaged around the West End stage in the hit musical Hairspray playing Edna Turnblad receiving critical acclaim for his performance. In 2011 Jupitus played King Arthur in the UK and Irish tour of Spamalot.

A work in progress show.

A raft of home grown and international talent descends on The Bedford across 8 nights and 9 days of uproarious hilarity, giving comedy fans a unique opportunity to get up close and personal with artists they know, and those they don’t know they love yet but soon will!
