Jack Whitehall            

Award-Winning Actor, Comedian, Presenter & Writer

As a successful and much sought-after stand up, actor, writer and presenter, Jack Whitehall has firmly established himself as one of the UK’s most exciting and successful comedy talents, a status cemented by his People’s Choice Award for the King of Comedy at the 2012, 2013 & 2014 British Comedy Awards.

A talented actor, Whitehall received critical acclaim and another British Comedy Award nomination for his portrayal of former public schoolboy JP in the hit C4 comedy drama Fresh Meat. Whitehall received similar praise for his revival of JP in the second series of the show, as well as being nominated for Best Comedy Performance at the Royal Television Society Awards. Series 3 was also brilliantly received, with the equally critically-acclaimed 4th series airing in early 2016.

In 2012, Whitehall created hit school-based sitcom Bad Education, which concluded in 2014 after three critically-acclaimed series. Whitehall starred in the show as hapless history teacher Alfie Wickers alongside a stellar cast including Matthew Horne and Harry Enfield. It was nominated in 2013 for Best Sitcom at the British Comedy Awards. A film adaptation, The Bad Education Movie, was released in summer 2015. He is also set to appear alongside Jennifer Aniston and Julia Roberts in upcoming film Mother’s Day, slated for UK release in June 2016.

Whitehall hosts his own chat show with his father Michael Whitehall on BBC 3 entitled Backchat and is a regular panelist for Sky 1’s A League of Their Own. He also hosted 2015’s Royal Variety Performance, the youngest performer in the history of the show to do so. Other recent television appearances include QI, Big Fat Quiz of the Year, The Graham Norton Show, Sunday Night at the Palladium and Have I Got News For You.

In October 2013, he released his first book, Him & Me. Written with his father Michael Whitehall, Him & Me is a hugely entertaining and irreverent account of a unique relationship between a father and son. Written in two distinctive styles, it reflects the larger-than-life personalities of its authors, Jack and Michael Whitehall.
