Biography

Jack Whitehall is an award winning comic, actor and presenter. After making his TV debut on Big Brother's Big Mouth, he went on to host the show. Since then, he’s become a regular face on TV, from panel shows to acclaimed sitcoms such as Fresh Meat and Bad Education.

Jack’s confident, energetic and topical comedy inspires favourable comparisons to Russell Brand and The Mighty Boosh, whilst his mannerisms and approach have been likened to Michael McIntrye and Stewart Lee. His material, meanwhile, covers everything from politicians to parents, and from reality TV to being ‘middle-class but still misunderstood’.

Within a year of starting standup at the tender age of 18, Jack was winning prestigious new comedy awards. Both Time Out and The Telgraph marked him out as ‘a rising star,’ with the Standard describing him as ‘a shoe-in for stardom.’ He was also nominated for the Best Newcomer prize at Edinburgh.

Since his Big Brother breakthrough, Jack has been seen in the guest presenter’s chair on Never Mind the Buzzcocks. He’s a regular on 8 Out Of 10 Cats and Mock The Week, one of the three stand ups on Channel 4’s topical Stand Up For The Week show, and has turned up on Live at the Apollo, The Apprentice: You're Fired and Michael McIntyre's Comedy Roadshow.
