Phil Kay: The Wholly Viable

Phil reading GO-1

We are delighted to bring comic storyteller Phil Kay to Rochester as part of his Wholly Viable Tour. The legendary comedian has appeared on QI and Russell Howard’s Good News, and been a guest at the Edinburgh Fringe for the last 25 years.

Phil will be performing several of the anecdotes that appear in his recently-published book “The Wholly Viable: An Autobiography”. Mad things Phil has done include bike-riding at dawn in China, hitchhiking in the Highlands, and playing ping-pong with Snow Patrol. His natural gift as a performer makes his readings more three-dimensional, and sometimes downright wild, which may be the reason he’s actually been thrown out of his own venue – twice!

Phil’s writing credits include the Jonathan Ross Saturday Show, The Smell of Reeves and Mortimer, Sean’s Show, Viva Cabaret, Harry Hill and more. Described as “mesmerising” and “genius” by Time Out, and “gripping” by The Times, this evening with Phil Kay promises to be both fascinating and funny!

“The man remains one of the most consistently brilliant and uncompromising comedians of his and future generations.” The Metro

“Phil Kay: The Wholly Viable” takes place at the Billabong Club on Victoria Street in Rochester on Friday 3rd October. Doors open at 8.-00pm. Tickets cost £7 plus booking fee and are available here.

There will be additional fun with support in the shape of Mat Wills and Nigel Adams.
