MILES JUPP IS THE CHAP YOU’RE THINKING OF
NATIONAL TOUR: January – April 2014
Award Winning actor, writer and comedian, Miles Jupp is making a welcome return to stand-up. He is back on the road for the first time since his hugely successful Fibber in the Heat tour of 2011/12. After an extremely busy three years, Miles returns to the stage with an all new hour of brilliant and beguiling stand up. The tour begins in Reading at South Street on the 9th January and runs through until its conclusion at Glasgow Citizens Theatre on the 2nd April. See below for all dates.
Perrier award nominated Miles will be discussing/ranting/describing: himself, you, domestic imprisonment, fatherhood, having to have opinions, hot drinks, the bloody government, bad balance, housing, ill health, the ageing process, navigation, other people’s pants and, inevitably, a number of other things.
Pretty spicy stuff, I’m sure you’ll agree. Bits of it will be quite mild-mannered, and some of it will probably be a tad on the stroppy side. It’s a man, standing on a stage, facing an audience, talking about some things and ultimately aiming to cover the cost of his white goods.
Miles has many film, TV and Radio credits to his name appearing regularly on Have I Got News For You and Mock The Week and is currently (October 2013) filming the third series of BBC 2 hit comedy with Tom Hollander, REV, (dir Peter Cattaneo – The Full Monty), playing Nigel. He has appeared on the award winning Stewart Lee’s Comedy Vehicle, Michael McIntyre’s Comedy Roadshow , Never Mind The Buzzcocks, A Young Doctor’s Notebook (with Daniel Radcliffe) and played hapless press officer, John Duggan in The Thick Of It and was also in Balamory. He also recently appeared in Alan Bennett’s People at the National Theatre for 8 months.
He can be seen in numerous feature films including Michael Winterbottom’s The Look Of Love. He also has roles in three soon to be released pictures: The Monuments Men directed by George Clooney, The Last Sparks of Sundown directed by James Kibby and The Daily Show’s host Jon Stewart’s directorial debut Rosewater as well as Sherlock Homes, Made in Dagenham and Johnny English: Reborn.
A Radio 4 regular, he hosts the panel show It’s Not What You Know, and his sitcom In And Out Of The Kitchen was nominated for a Writers’ Guild Award and will transfer to television in 2014 for the BBC. He is also a regular contributor to the station’s News Quiz as well as a whole host of other shows such as Just a Minute and I’m Sorry I Haven’t a Clue.
Miles started performing stand up in Scotland in 2000 and the following year won both So You Think You’re Funny and The Leicester Mercury Comedian of the Year. Since then Miles has performed all over the world, most recently in New Zealand at the Comedy Festival and completed a tour of Australia in 2010.
Fibber in the Heat was published by Ebury Press in April 2012 and went to be shortlisted for the William Hill Sports Book Of the Year as well as the MCC and Cricket Society Book Of The Year.
