Phil Cornwell

Phil Cornwell (born 5 October 1957 in Southend-on-Sea, Essex) is an English comedian, actor, impressionist and writer. He is probably best known as being part of the "Dead Ringers" television and radio series. Cornwell has co-written and performed principal roles in "The Glam Metal Detectives" and "Stella Street".

Cornwell provided the voices of Mick Jagger and David Bowie for the Steve Wright in the Afternoon show on Radio 1 in the late eighties. These two voices formed the backbone of the BBC TV series Stella Street, performed with John Sessions who played Keith Richards among others.

He has appeared in several films made by The Comic Strip, including the role as Dave Spanker in "Detectives on the Edge of a Nervous Breakdown". He also played Dave Clifton, a local radio DJ on Radio Norwich - a fictional radio station in both series of "I'm Alan Partridge".

Cornwell has also provided the voice of Murdoc Niccals of the animated band Gorillaz. He also voiced Sir Lancelot in the animated children's television series "King Arthur's Disasters". He was the voice of Gilbert the Alien in the 1980s TV series "Get Fresh", which later span off into "Gilbert's Fridge", a series starring the character. [cite web
