Jack Whitehall's Main TV Roles
Main Movie Roles
Guest TV Roles[none found]
Jack Whitehall was a child actor in various television dramas, but decided to pursue stand-up after leaving school. He was a finalist in the So You Think You're Funny talent hunt at last year's Edinburgh Fringe, and was nominated for best newcomer at this year's Chortle Awards.
His strengths include a brilliant command of the language, able to conjure up just the right image at the right time, and a world-weariness beyond his years. He hasn't quite perfected that comic voice yet, however, with the bored, deadpan and uncharismatic delivery proving more a hindrance than a help.
- His father is the agent and producer 'Michael Whitehall' (qv).
- Placed second in the Laughing Horse new act competition 2007 and finalist in the So You Think You're Funny? new act competition the same year. Nominated for best newcomer in the 2008 Chortle awards.
