Jack Whitehall has landed a six-part, primetime series, touring Britain for Channel 4.
The broadcaster has commissioned a full series of Hit The Road Jack following a successful pilot earlier the year. It follows him on a stand-up tour of the UK, where he also meets celebrities and is joined by local comedians.
But the main twist is that he arrives in each city knowing no one and with nowhere to stay, so his first task is to find a stranger willing to accommodate him.
Channel 4s entertainment commissioning editor Syeda Irtizaali said: At only 23, Jack has already been entertaining Channel 4 viewers for years and this move to primetime with his own show is something for us all to celebrate. This new show will bring his razor-sharp brand of comedy to different places around the country with plenty of stunts, celebrity guests and fun with the locals.
The show is being made by Magnum Media, whose managing director Andy Auerbach said: It's very exciting for us to be working with Jack. He is incredibly funny, totally charming and, I'm told, rather good looking the perfect package.
Whitehall also stars in the forthcoming Channel 4 comedy drama Fresh Meat, an eight-part series from Peep Show creators Sam Bain and Jesse Armstrong.
