Phil Cool Live: Theatre Royal, Hanley, Staffordshire. 1987
Phil Cool: Who’s He? Clubwest @ Grosvenor Hilton, Edinburgh, 2009

Phil Cool is a master of facial expression, impression and comedy.  He has a fantastic variety of impersonations and has the ability to pull his face in all sorts of directions for comic effect.  I first saw this extraordinary comic gift when I was at college doing Business Studies at Staffordshire Polytechnic between 1986 and 1988 and Cool’s tour arrived at the Theatre Royal in Hanley in 1987.  The act was memorable and I was delighted to see him again perform live at the Edinburgh Fringe in 2009 where he seemed to have got better as he got older.
