"Philip "Phil" Cornwell" (b. October 5, 1957) is an English comedian, actor, impressionist and writer.
He is known as the voice of Murdoc Niccals.
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. He is also well known as DJ Dave Clifton from I'm Alan Partridge and Alpha Papa.
In 2017, he appeared in the Strobelite music video giving Murdoc a mysterious card. This character and scene later became more relevant in the FreeMurdoc campaign as Murdoc said the man was a smuggler named "El Mierda" who framed him for one of his crimes. Though later on, Noodle found out Murdoc lied and the man was just a leather goods salesman named Juan.
