Comedian Phill Jupitus confirms Shetland gig as part of national tour
Comedian and television/radio presenter Phill Jupitus is set to bring his new stand-up comedy show Juplicity to Shetland as part of a UK national tour next summer.
In the show he aims to create laughs out of the chaos of his own life and the uncertain world that surrounds it.
Jupitus – perhaps best known for his long-term team captaincy on the BBC2 music quiz show Never Mind the Buzzcocks – will appear at Mareel on Saturday 22nd July.
In addition to his stand-up career and 19-year run on Never Mind the Buzzcocks, he also appears as a regular guest on panel shows such as QI.
He is a regular panellist on the award winning I’m Sorry I Haven’t a Clue Radio 4 show and was BBC Radio 6 Music’s breakfast show presenter for five years and also filled in for Steve Wright on his BBC Radio 2 afternoon show.
Earlier this year Jupitus toured the UK and Ireland with the musical Chitty Chitty Bang Bang, starring as Baron Bomburst/Lord Scrumptious, while last August he also played Bottom in the Bath Theatre Royal production of A Midsummer’s Night Dream. Tickets are available.
