Philliam and Willipp Strikes Again

Philliam and Whillipp Strikes Again is a split bill comedy show (returning to Brighton) from young up-and-coming comedians William Hitt and Philipp Kostelecky “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.

Regular performing at comedy clubs across the UK and tour support act for Russel Kane, Philipp Kostelecky shares what it’s like to grow up under an American-Slovenian mother and absentee Austrian father all whilst being an immigrant in the UK. Philipp uses his unorthodox cultural background and family structure to pose as the external observer cultivating a silly and offbeat socio-political perspective.

“Superb observations, confidence, and enough charisma to fill big rooms - which he will, very soon….” - Russell Kane

Will (BBC Radio London, Backyard Comedy Club) then finishes the hour with material on celebrity culture, the economy, race, geo-politics and his own 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 at Brighton Fringe in May 2021. Previews at South Kensington Comedy Club, Vauxhall Comedy Club, Comedy 43, Angel Comedy, Camden Comedy Club, and 2NorthDown.

Quotes from previous shows:

"I cried with laughter. Some of Kostelecky's impressions and accents were pitch-perfect, like those performed by a young Jim Carrey"

- The Founder

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

- The Orbital Magazine
