Phill Jupitus on playing Conservative in Coalition play

Comedian Phill Jupitus joked his research to play a Conservative in a play including his time at boarding school and his father attending a Rotary club.

He plays Tory special adviser Sir Francis Whitford in Coalition at the Pleasance Theatre in London.

And he said fellow comedians should stay out of the BBC's Question Time, and leave it to the politicians, as he debated with Jo Coburn and Richard Madeley about the funniest politicians.
