What is Pushstarter?

…well, it’s a parody of Kickstarter, silly.  If Kickstarter try to sue for copyright infringement, we hope you’ll contribute to our legal fighting fund through our Kickstarter campaign.

Pushstarter is thought up by Phil Whelans. Why don’t we let Phil – I’m Phil – tell you about him(my)self?

Phil is a Comedy writer performer. He does both in his radio 4 sitcom, My First Planet and with Pros from Dover who were resident sketch group on two series of The Infinite Monkey Cage and on one episode of 28 Acts in 28 Minutes (Radio 4.) He’s written and performed with an unsettlingly broad spectrum of people on TV and Radio over the last twenty years, from Chris Morris to Basil Brush via Joan Rivers, Kevin Eldon, Leslie Phillips and Brian Conley. He’s written topical mirth for the 11 o’Clock Show, The Big Breakfast, Spitting Image and The Now Show, he script edited BBC Scotland’s sketch show Velvet Soup and Radio 2’s Jason Byrne Show. He wrote the animation scripts for KNTV (“Channel 4 at its best” – The Guardian) and has punched up Life of Riley (BBC1) and The Amazing World of Gumball (Cartoon Network.) He’s done impro all over the world, appearing in numerous failed TV and radio impro pilots and he accidentally saved the planet when he wrote the script for big Al Gore’s Live Earth show at Wembley Stadium. He directed Phil Nichol’s Edinburgh Comedy Award winner, The Naked Racist and he plays bass in punk covers band Beergut 100 with Kevin Eldon and Bill Bailey.

Pushstarter is made all proper and nice by @Unklerupert.
