Phill Jupitus And Deborah Frances-White: Voices In Your Head – The Phill Jupitus Experiment (So Comedy)

By | Published on Thursday 15 August 2013

Phill Jupitus duels with ‘The Voice’ (Frances-White), in a game of wit, skill, and polar bear impressions. This wonderfully theatrical experience kicks off as ‘The Voice’ addresses the audience, asking for help in wrong-footing Jupitus. We are complicit in the show’s experiment, adding to the excitement, and the anticipation of what might happen. The presentation is raw, with a sparse set and a microphone-free Jupitus focusing attention on the nature of the performance itself. Proceedings could have been more experimental, and it would have been interesting to see Jupitus pushed even further by Frances-White. But nevertheless, this is a unique show, with a thrillingly voyeuristic streak and one that comes highly recommended.

Pleasance Dome, until 26 Aug (not 12), 8.30pm.
