UK funnyman Jack Whitehall is heading to Newcastle in 2020

Lauded comedian, writer, and actor Jack Whitehall will be bringing his new show Stood Up to Newcastle

The star of the hilarious Netflix series Travels With My Father will have ’em rolling in the aisles at the Civic Theatre on Thursday 6 February.

Jack is currently on a sellout tour of the UK and with the likes of The Times exclaiming: “If you’re going to do arena comedy, this is how to do it,” you can expect more than a few belly laughs on his six-date Australian run.

“I couldn’t be more thrilled to be going back out on the road,” he said.

“There’s no feeling like standing up on stage in front of a theatre full of strangers, and still being able to hear your dad heckle you.”

Widely celebrated for Travels With My Father, Jack has most recently been seen in Lasse Hallstrom’s The Nutcracker And The Four Realms opposite Keira Knightley, Helen Mirren, and Morgan Freeman.

He is also set to star in Disney’s upcoming movie Jungle Cruise opposite Dwayne Johnson and Emily Blunt, which will be released in 2020.

His television credits include Decline & Fall, Fresh Meat, Bad Education, Backchat, A League Of Their OwnStand Up For The Week, and Live At The Apollo.

Catch Jack Whitehall at the Civic Theatre on Thursday 6 February. Tickets are on sale from 9am on Monday 9 December.
