Aside from live poetry and stand-up shows all over the UK, he also appears as a regular guest on QI (BBC2) and Alan Davies: As Yet Untitled (Dave) and in 2012 returned to television stand-up for the first time since 2000 with an appearance on Live at the Apollo (BBC1). As an actor, Phill starred as Baron Bomburst / Lord Scrumptious in the UK and Ireland tour of Chitty Chitty Bang Bang alongside Jason Manford, which has just come to an end. He played Bottom in the Bath Theatre Royal production of A Midsummer Night's Dream last August. His other stage roles include performances in The Producers, Urinetown: The Musical, Hairspray, Spamalot, Big Society, and Waiting for Alice.

Personal Quotes (1)

One of the most positive and surprising reactions we got from the listeners was when one morning we had been told to play the new U2 single at 8pm. When we asked why we had to do this, our beaming controller said: "Because every radio station is!" Which wasn't really a reason. We started to play it and it was pretty much business as usual with the lads. Chiming electric guitars and Bono upset about something. After a minute I took it off, saying: "Right, I imagine it carries on like that, but if you want to hear the rest of it tune in to Terry Wogan. I work for you lot, not U2's record company, and I'm sure that Bono would fully support me in my stance against external oppression ... these are The Futureheads." I braced myself for the deluge of emails. After just two pissy emails from U2 fans, dozens said well done, because in their words "that's what 6 Music is supposed to be about."
