Jack Whitehall on Tour
A witty, energetic, and engaging performer who's never afraid to invite a laugh at his own expense, Jack Whitehall has become one of British comedy's best-loved talents both at home and abroad. Voted the "King of Comedy" by the public at the U.K. Comedy Awards three times, Whitehall has become a firm favourite thanks to his uproarious stand-up performances and his memorable characters on such TV series as Fresh Meat, Bad Education and Decline and Fall.
In 2017, he garnered raves on both sides of the Atlantic with the Netflix premieres of his stand-up special At Large and documentary series Jack Whitehall: Travels With My Father, which portrays the actor and comedian's misadventures alongside his father, Michael.
Whitehall returns to some of the U.K.'s biggest venues in November for Stood Up, his latest national tour.
Jack Whitehall Background
Jack Whitehall developed his love for performing while in drama class in west London, where one of his classmates was Robert Pattinson. The connection later yielded some rich material, even if the young Whitehall didn't feel good about losing out on so many roles to his schoolmate.
After abandoning his studies at Oxford and Manchester University so he could throw his energy into his stand-up career, Whitehall soon broke out of the ranks. Successes at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe and the Laughing Horse New Act of the Year competition led to his first solo show at the Fringe in 2009. Following appearances at Montreal's Just for Laughs and Channel 4's annual Comedy Gala, he earned his first British Comedy Award nomination in 2011.
Just as Whitehall's stand-up career was taking off, the world of television became a welcome home for the young performer, too. Bad Education, a comedy-drama in which Whitehall starred as the reliably terrible teacher Alfie Wickers, became a runaway hit for BBC 3. After three highly rated seasons, it garnered a film spin-off with 2015's The Bad Education Movie.
While Whitehall continued to display his more outrageous side in TV series like Fresh Meat, another aspect of his comedic sensibility emerged in Jack Whitehall: Travels with My Father. The documentary series features Whitehall travelling through Southeast Asia with his reliably unimpressed father. It debuted on Netflix in 2017, the same year as At Large, a stand-up special that further established an international audience for one of British comedy's brightest talents.
