COMEDY: Phill Jupitus
British actor, poet, radio DJ and comedian Phill Jupitus is coming to Bangkok. He is best known for his prominent role as team captain on the enduring UK comedy panel gameshow, Never Mind the Buzzcocks—a program notorious for its dry, sarcastic humor, scathing attacks, and tongue-in- cheek approach to topical issues. Jupitus is prone to hilarious storytelling based on the chaos of his own life, delivering adult topics in a childish and very relatable manner. His observational style of humor perfectly balances moments of silence with comic outbursts.
