He's a renaissance man with a jester's mind, a comic crusader with kryptonite wit, a naughty knave in a keyboard tie. He's one part Jedi, one part Nick Hornby and one part merry prankster with a crackingly good sense of humour.
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.
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's 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.
