Sat on the stage drinking a cup of tea and playing records, with his back to the audience- it was like we were entering Phill Jupitus’ own lounge as we took our seats in the auditorium of Leeds Grand Theatre.
Stand-up comedian, poet, improviser and TV stalwart, Mr Jupitus hit the road this Autumn with his new stand-up show JUPLICITY.
He played the first act as Porky the Poet reading his comical verse which was very amusing.
During the interval Mr Jupitus walked around the audience chatting, giving out biscuits and happily posing for selfies which was really nice to see.
He came on stage in the second act as himself and was even funnier!
Mr Jupitus told stories about his life and family, whilst interacting with the audience. It said in the programme the show was ‘an hour and a bit’ but it was actually 2 3/4 hours with an interval – so it was well worth the trip.
Warning: Adult themes and situations, delivered childishly.
