COMEDIAN Phill Jupitus has filled his diary for late-winter and spring with more tour dates for his 2017 show, Juplicity, taking in Helmsley Arts Centre on March 18 and Pocklington Arts Centre on April 5.

The Isle of Wight stand-up comedian, poet, improviser and television stalwart from Never Mind The Buzzcocks and QI will "drag laughs out of the chaos of his own life and the uncertain world that surrounds it – and by that world, we mean your world too". Be warned, Jupitus promises "adult themes and situations, delivered childishly".

Now 55, he became a familiar face as a team captain from 1996 on Never Mind The Buzzcocks, the BBC2’s music quiz that went on to run for 19 years. He appears as a regular guest on BBC2's QI and Dave's Alan Davies As Yet Untitled and in 2012 he returned to television stand-up for the first time since 2000 with an appearance on BBC1's Live At The Apollo.

On BBC Radio 4, Jupitus is a frequent panellist on I’m Sorry I Haven’t A Clue and The Unbelievable Truth and was resident curator on The Museum Of Curiosity. In addition, he has presented such radio documentaries as Phill Jupitus’ Comic Strips, Calvin And Hobbes and The Man Who Bought Hendrix’s Stage.

His theatre work includes playing Bottom in A Midsummer’s Night Dream at Bath Theatre Royal; appearing as Franz Liebkind alongside Jason Manford on tour in Mel Brooks's The Producers; taking the West End role of Caldwell B. Cladwell in Urinetown at the Apollo Theatre, London, and making his West End singing debut in 2009 as Edna Turnblad in Hairspray at the Shaftesbury Theatre.
