Now, I’m not going to pretend to you that what I do has any real worth.  But then again, can any of us claim real worth? The chap who invented the drive-thru cashpoint machine, he’s got worth – bags of it, but he’s probably the only person alive today who has.  Oh, and Kate Garraway.  She’s very good, isn’t she?

But I’m digressing.  The point is that I stand on stage and talk about things with PowerPoint and a really big screen.  It’s not strictly stand-up comedy, but comedy nights are really the only places where it fits.  I also write stuff, all sorts of stuff really.  If you want it in old-skool book form, then it’s mostly poetry.  If you want it on on your computer, then it’s mostly aimless projects and experiments.

So it’s a mixed bag really, but that’s just the way it’s turned out.  And nice it is too – I can’t complain.

So, thanks loads for arriving here.


  • “Phil Lucas is like a child with special powers trapped in the body of a 42 year old man. In the best possible way.”

  • Nathan Kail – co-founder of Giraffe Comedy Magazine
  • “Phil is an original and by that I mean a genius. His ability to not only write outstanding poetry is coupled with an amazing sense of humour that makes me laugh out loud. His playful originality always surprises and delights.”

  • Aidan Goatley – comedian/author
  • “Embracing seemingly inconsequential tabloid minutiae and pursuing his cause with foolhardy exuberance, Phil Lucas tilts at socially constructed windmill’s with unrivalled gusto. A modern day Don Quixote; erudite, loveable and hilarious, he’s either a savant or an idiot. Probably both.”

  • Nathan Wood – radio presenter
  • “I wish I’d never left him.” *

  • Wendy Craig – actress
  • “In an overcrowded landscape where people try so hard to be oblique and different, Mr Lucas is genuinely unique. Funny, sweet, charming, but with playful teeth, he has become my benchmark for beautifully funny. Phillip Michael The Battleship Potempkin Lucas, a grateful nation salutes you.”

  • The Huffington Post

  • A man who would be clinically depressed if Photoshop and PowerPoint didn’t exist.

  • Alex Martini – Promoter and Comedian

  • Max Dowler – comedian and impressionist
  • “A poet of great wit and warmth; capable of summoning the 1970s from a vision of buses or making you laugh at loud with observations on the shallowness of modern life. Phil’ s work recalls Betjeman, John Hegley and Roger McGough while retaining its own, very distinct voice.”
