The Pope and Bugs Bunny in a show
2:50pm Wednesday 29th February 2012 in Leisure
STAND-up “chameleon” Phil Cool is coming to Worcester’s Swan Theatre.
Cool shot to shot to prominence in the late 80s when a producer from the BBC spotted him working as an audience warm up for the satirical television programme Spitting Image.
He can metamorphose with ease from the Pope to Sylvester Stallone, Tina Turner to Forrest Gump, Jack Nicholson to Bugs Bunny, David Attenborough to a seahorse.
The second series of his BBC show Cool It won the Royal Television Society Award for Most Original Television Achievement. Cool’s dexterous impressions and surreal comic sketches make him one of the country's finest and most original comedians and impressionists.
He is legendary for his facial contortion expertise and punctuates his show with a wealth of hilarious anecdotes, observations and routines.
Phil Cool will be at the Swan Theatre on Thursday, March 8, at 8pm.
Tickets cost £15 and are available by calling the box office on 01905 611427 or online at theswantheatre.co.uk.
