So much talent in one man could easily make you sick - if he was not such a thoroughly down-to-earth and amiable chap. With a past that includes bass guitarist for Billy Bragg, artist, impressionist, and talented singer, it is no surprise that Phill is now leaving his wake in the world of top class comedy.
Born 40 years ago as the eldest of three siblings in a 'somewhat more serious household' on the Isle of Wight. His love for Monty Python and Pop Music inadvertently steered him into the career that has made him famous in several cultural fields throughout the United Kingdom. His college years he did not receive any praise for his studying habits, eventually dropping out and joining the Civil Service. He spent five years in a Job Centre where he spent the long days jotting poetry and lyrics to un-invented songs. In 1984 he quit his job determined to become a name in the music industry.
After a few years as a left wing poet appearing in pubs and universities, he found himself in the position of being the MC for the popular 80's rock group the Housemartins. Through this time he realised that the audiences warmed to his spontaneous, and often ad-lib style of humour.
Phill has moved from strength to strength in the comedy circuit appearing several times at the Edinburgh Festival to sell out crowds. He finds himself comfortable with almost any crowd due to his different levels of comedy, 'pavement, gutter and sewer'. Extremely witty and modern, preferring to speak about the current events of the world rather than recycling old material for present times.
His style of humour is always extremely entertaining at the same time taunting in the way that he easily maintains a high laughter level, whilst being spontaneous and quick witted.
