Hotbed – Phill Jupitus at Connaught Theatre


Phill Jupitus is performing at the Connaught Theatre, Worthing at 7.30 pm on Thursday June 4th.

Phill Jupitus began his performing career in 1984, when he quit working in a Job Centre to become a left-wing punk poet, going by the name Porky The Poet. As his poetry turned into comedy, his big TV break came in 1996, when he joined BBC2’s pop quiz Never Mind The Buzzcocks as a regular team captain.

This show is part of Hotbed, supporting local comedians, singer-songwriters, performance poets and more as they strive to reach the big time, all compered by Mark Kelly, “unsung hero of alternative comedy”.

Support includes Andrew Foster, singer-songwriter and Rachel Hawker, singer-songwriter. Andrewconjures atmospheric indie-pop and folk music, influenced by traditional songwriting sensibilities. The release of his album Science & Magic was given 4 Stars by R2 Rock ‘n’ Reel Magazine and cemented his place supporting singer-songwriter legend Terry Reid on his UK tour.

Tickets are £21.50.

The Connaught Theatre is at 3 Union Place, Worthing.
