About

At just twenty-two years old, Jack Whitehall made a remarkable impact upon the comedy world.

In August 2009, he was nominated for the Best Newcomer Award at the Edinburgh Comedy Awards for his debut solo Fringe show, Nearly Rebellious. The show received rave reviews and completely sold out, with an extra date added due to public demand.

In July 2010 he performed at the Montreal Just For Laughs Festival as part of the prestigious New Faces line-up and was picked out by Hollywood industry bible Variety as one of their "10 Comics to Watch" and in August 2010 returned to the Edinburgh Fringe Festival with a brand new stand up show entitled Learning Difficulties, once again picking up great reviews and playing to packed houses.

With a host of competition titles and an array of live appearances under his belt, this so-called 'newcomer' has guest hosted Never Mind the Buzzcocks and co-wrote and hosted TNT Show on Channel 4. In 2009 Jack hosted Celebrity Big Brother's Big Mouth for its three week run live on E4. Recent television appearances include You Have Been Watching, Would I Lie to You? , 8 Out of 10 Cats, Mock the Week, The Graham Norton Show as well as A Comedy Roast and Channel 4's Comedy Gala filmed at the O2. In Autumn 2010 Jack filmed for the C4 show Stand Up For The Week, in which he and a clutch of other top comics have been giving their views on events each week and also in 2010 Jack appeared on Michael McIntyre's Comedy Roadshow.

Born into a theatrical family, Jack Whitehall initially worked as a child actor in various television dramas but shortly after leaving school he decided to pursue a career in stand up comedy. Six months later, aged 18, he beat over 600 contestants to become the youngest ever comedian to reach the final of the prestigious Laughing Horse New Act competition for which he finished runner up.

In addition, he battled his way through a tense two night London competition to secure a place on the Pleasance Comedy Reserve. Whilst at the Fringe, he reached the final of Channel 5's So You Think You're Funny? and was crowned the youngest ever Winner of The Amused Moose New Act of the Year, leading Time Out to pinpoint him as "a rising star."
