274 – Phil Ellis
A masterful architect of the complete shambles, Phil Ellis plays "a permanently nose-diving version of himself" on stage and in his BBC Radio 4 series "Phil Ellis Is Trying". We discuss disaster, dignity and anger in his back catalogue of shows that go wrong, and get the inside story of Phil's Edinburgh Award-winning "Funz and Gamez"; the kids' show that deliberately and hilariously sails over the heads of the children in the audience. We also learn which disastrous audition left Phil crawling out of the room... Extra material available to the Insiders Club at www.comedianscomedian.com/insiders includes Phil's candid analysis of exactly how and why the TV adaptation of "Funz and Gamez" went awry... @ThePhilEllis Book now for LIVE ComComPods: Feb 2nd 4.30pm - Live special with hilarious rubber-limbed melodramatists POLICE COPS @ Vault Festival London!
