Phill Jupitus

Phill Jupitus: Awards Host

And, after hosting the BAFTA Interactive Entertainment Awards (2000 and 2001), the Q awards (2001) and the Empire Awards (2002); he may even become the arch nemesis of dashing MC’s everywhere.

Phill Jupitus: Comedian

Phill became a television personality in 1996; when he joined BBC2’s pop quiz Never Mind The Buzzcocks as a regular team captain. Anyone who has seen the show can attest to the chemistry of the irreverent Jupitus; especially when stirred by Mark Lamarr’s dry martini delivery and fellow captain Sean Hughes’ poetic charm. It’s no wonder such an unpredictable, refreshing cocktail has earned a loyal following from day one. There is, however, much more to the ‘Jupe’ than Buzzcocks fame.

As a stand up comedian, he’s brandished his rapier wit on both the national and London comedy circuits for eleven years; as well as touring the UK twice.

Punk Poetry

It all started on a fateful day in 1984; when a disillusioned young Phill Jupitus quit the Civil Service and started performing punk poetry. Supporting bands including The Style Council, The Housemartins and Billy Bragg. Two years later, he began working for indie label Go! Discs – whose artists included Billy Bragg – where he eventually became press officer to The Housemartins.

Phill Jupitus: Radio Presenter

Phill’s love for music has been well employed on BBC GLR (Greater London Radio); where he presented his own show from 1995 to 2000. He has also directed videos for Billy Bragg and the late Kirsty McColl.

Comedy Tours

In 1996, light sabre in hand, Phill Jupitus performed his first tour of the UK with ‘Jedi, Steady, Go’; a personal interpretation of the Star Wars story. In 1999, his second UK tour, ‘Quadrophobia’, was a huge success.
