Philliam and Willipp is a split bill comedy show from young up-and-coming comedians Wiliiam Hitt (BBC Radio London) and Philipp Kostelecky (BBC Wales) “Tongue-in-cheek provocative material” - Chortle. Their child-like energy, confident stage presence, and quick-fire performance styles have seen them propelled up the UK comedy ladder.
Comedy Store King Gong Show winner and Roast Battle UK champion Philipp Kostelecky shares what it’s like to grow up under an American-Slovenian mother and absentee Austrian father, using his unorthodox cultural background and family structure to pose as the external observer on topics such as toxic masculinity, white privilege and grocery stores through an offbeat socio-political perspective.
Will then finishes off the hour with a misanthropic and anxiety-ridden discussion on celebrity culture, the economy, his own bisexuality and extreme sexual dysfunction which have seen him earn semi-final spots at Laughing Horse and So You Think You’re Funny.
The show has toured previously at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival under the name “Philipp and Phriends” with Laughing Horse Free Fringe and briefly “Almost There” with PBH and will be previewing from January to April at the South Kensington Comedy Club, Vauxhall Comedy Club, Comedy 43 and Boma Bridge Comedy Club.

- The Founder
"His charisma and stand up comedy captivated the audience from the moment he stepped onto the stage"
