THE award-winning stand-up comic, performance poet and broadcast personality Phill Jupitus will return to the Edinburgh Fringe Festival this summer.

His new show, Sketch Comic – to be held at the National Galleries of Scotland – highlights his deep love of art.

Jupitus,pictured holding his iPad artwork shetch of Cenus Anadyomene which was painted around 1520, will let loose on the collections at the gallery. The comic will sketch some of his favourite works and encourage visitors to join in and share their own sketches.

He will also present a free talk – on his love of painting and the experience of sketching in the Galleries – on each Thursday, from August 4 to 22, with fellow stand-up comic and art historian Hannah Gadsby.
