Phill Jupitus used his brilliant art of storytelling and poetry to wow the audience in his first sell-out show of his national Juplicity tour.
Taking to the stage at the Playhouse Norwich in the first half was Porky the Poet - Jupitus' alter ego.
Taking on a different form of comedy for those who may only know him from panel shows, the performance poet had the audience in hysterics with his play on words and rhythmic timing as he recalled meeting one of his heroes and opening for one of the nation's biggest ska bands.
Moving into the second half, Jupitus returned to the stage, although he never left during the interval, to tell comedic anecdotes from his life.
Relying on the art of storytelling, Jupitus had the audience giggling and laughing all the way through his stories about earning a doctorate and the chip shop life of Edinburgh.
