Netflix has released the trailer for Jack Whitehall's new stand-up special At Large.

The clip shows him comparing British and American attitudes to drinking and explaining why he's not yet ready for parenthood.

'I don't think I'm ready for a child at the moment. I can't even look after a phone. You drop a phone, you can get a new one. Doesn't work like that with kids.

'Same goes with upgrades: you get a slow one, you're stuck with it.'

At Large is Whitehall's first stand-up special exclusively for the on-demand service, which also distributes Travels With My Father, in which the comic holidays in South-East Asia with his distinctly unimpressed father Michael.

Jack Whitehall: At Large will be released on October 24.
