Comedy Chameleon Phil Cool continues his stand up career
PUBLISHED: 10:00 06 October 2011
THE man with the rubber face, Phil Cool, will bring his unique show of imitation to The Playhouse this month.
Known as the world’s only stand up chameleon, Phil’s body seems to defy all anatomical laws. He can be anyone or anything ranging from celebrities to aliens, delivering the ultimate variety show.
And after undergoing a quadruple heart bypass four months ago the dedicated master of impressions is showing his commitment to his fans, and will be arriving in Weston, ready to give one of his incredible live shows.
As one of the most unique comic talents of Great Britain, Phil’s impressions and surreal comic sketches will take you into a world where the absurd seems credible.
Phil can transform his own features into that of the Pope, Sylvester Stallone, Bugs Bunny, Tina Turner and even a seahorse. If the deadly accurate impressions of President Bush and Tony Blair don’t get you, then the crazy stories from his own experience will.
Phil has been performing stand-up for over thirty years and is still comparable to no-one. He is currently writing his autobiography Phil Cool Died Here (and lived to tell the tale), has got a new CD coming out, has written a children’s poem which is also being filmed.
And he still continues to be out and about entertaining audiences, which consists of current impressions, stories, and music in his own unique style that he was famous for in his three BBC series and two ITV series.
Phil will perform at The Playhouse on October 21, at 7.30pm. Tickets, priced £15.00 are available from The Playhouse on 01934 645544 or online at www.theplayhouse.co.uk
