Phill Jupitus at the Shanklin Theatre

Individuals planning a getaway to the Isle of Wight over the coming weeks might like to head along to an evening of quick-witted entertainment at the Shanklin Theatre.

Comedy legend Phill Jupitus will be taking to the stage at the theatre on June 9th, with his one-man show highlighting the versatility and sharp improvisational skills of the seasoned entertainer.

Making three appearances on the evening, Jupitus will take on the characters of a number of alter egos and himself in a show set some distance in the future, looking at the lives of the late Vernon Herschel Harley, the late Kurt Schiffer and the late Phill Jupitus.

Drawing on the participation of a willing audience, Jupitus will set about examining the lives of these characters and creating a show that is like no other.

In the show, Phill Jupitus died on June 24th 2052 on the eve of his 90th birthday, while "Vernon Herschel Harley is a legend of stage and screen who died at the age of 114 just last Thursday".

The trio is completed by Kurt Schiffer, the 'Korvettenkapitan' of the U42B out of Hamburg - part of the German Navy's 'Wolf Packs' - who died in 1944.

The Scotsman described the work as "a huge amount of fun and an impressive display of Jupitus' skills".

Admission will cost £15 and the show will get underway from 20:00 BST.

Meanwhile, visitors to the island in the coming weeks looking for a more musical distraction might like to check out Stompin Dave's Blues3 at Quay Arts on July 5th.

Kicking off at 19:00, the evening's entertainment will include performances by three of the biggest names in UK blues - Stompin' Dave Allen, Earl Jackson and Sam Kelly.

Tickets will cost £12 in advance and £14 on the door, with the evening promising to be a real treat for all lovers of roots and blues.ADNFCR-3083-ID-801593741-ADNFCR
