About

Described by the Telegraph as a "very British tour-de-force", Miles Jupp has appeared as a performer across a wide range of genres, from stand-up comedy and theatre to major television series and Hollywood films.

He started performing stand-up comedy in 2000 when he won both So You Think You're Funny and Leicester Mercury Comedian of the Year. He soon became a regular performer on BBC Scotland's Live Floor Show and he earned a nomination for the Perrier Best Newcomer award for his debut solo show, Gentlemen Prefer Brogues.

He has contributed to many BBC Radio 4 shows such as The Vote Now Show and Loose Ends. As well as creating Miles Jupp's Real World, he presented It's Not What You Know and hosted 12 series of The News Quiz between June 2015 and May 2019. Miles also wrote and starred in In and Out of the Kitchen on Radio 4, of which there have been four series so far and became a television show on BBC4.

Miles returned to stand-up in 2007 with a new show Every Day Rage and Dinner Party Chit Chat and continued to write and perform in the Edinburgh Fringe until 2010 when he presented the critically acclaimed Fibber in the Heat about his experiences blagging his way into the press corps during an England cricket tour of India. The show toured in 2011 and 2012 culminating in a sell out performance in London's West End. The book of Fibber In The Heat was shortlisted for the William Hill Sports Book Of The Year.

In 2014, he embarked on another UK stand up tour and West End run with Miles Jupp Is The Chap You're Thinking Of and 2016 and 2017 performed Songs Of Freedom, the tour of which culminated with a performance at The London Palladium.

On television, Miles continues to work as a comedian and presenter, having appeared on such shows as Have I got News For You, QI, Mock the Week, Michael McIntyre's Comedy Roadshow, Live At the Apollo and James And Jupp.

As an actor on television he has appeared in the award-winning BBC2 sitcom Rev, alongside Tom Hollander and Olivia Coleman, Outnumbered, played John Duggan in Armando Iannucci's political comedy The Thick Of It and Capt. Sebastien Fanshawe in Tank Commander, as well as starring in all four series of the popular children's TV show, Balamory as Archie the inventor. He also appeared in The Crown on Netflix, Howards End for the BBC, and The Durrells and Bad Move for ITV.

In 2012, Miles made his National Theatre debut in Alan Bennett's People and in 2015 went on to perform in the theatre's critically acclaimed production of Rules for Living alongside Stephen Mangan. He has also appeared in The Way Of The World at Northampton Royal Theatre, A Death In The Death Of Joe Egg at the Glasgow Citizens and Neville's Island in the West End.

Miles' film credits have gone from strength to strength, appearing in international features such as George Clooney's The Monuments Men, Michael Winterbottom's The Look Of Love, Jon Stewart's Rosewater and Nigel Cole's Made In Dagenham, a film about the Ford machinists' strikes of the 1960s which led to the equal pay act. He has also featured in the blockbuster films Harry Potter And The Order Of The Phoenix, Death Defying Acts, Sherlock Holmes and Is Anybody There?
