Jack Whitehall announces 2019 arena tour

27 dates for Stood Up this autumn

Jack Whitehall has announced a new 27-date arena tour for this autumn.

The comic’s new show, Stood Up, will play 15 cities, starting on Birmingham on November 16 and ending in Manchester on December 22. Click here for the full schedule.  

The announcement of his first tour since 2017’s At Large comes the day before Whitehall presents the Brit awards at London’s O2 Arena – a venue he will return to for three nights during the tour.

Whitehall said: ‘I couldn’t be more thrilled to be going back out on the road. There’s no feeling like standing up on stage in front of an arena full of strangers, and still being able to hear your dad heckle you.’

Last month Chortle revealed that Whitehall's Travels With My Father is returning for a third series on Netflix, with the comic and his father Michael are travelling to the US . And yesterday Sky revealed more details and a trailer of the second series of Bounty Hunters, with Steve Pemberton joining the cast.

Most recently seen on the big screen in The Nutcracker And The Four Realms opposite Keira Knightley, Helen Mirren, and Morgan Freeman, Whitehall will next year appear in the Disney family blockbuster Jungle Cruise alongside Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson and Emily Blunt.

Some tickets for Stood Up go on sale at 10am tomorrow, with the rest released at the same time on Friday. 

• Christine Lampard had to apologise for Whitehall's language this morning when he appeared on ITV's Lorraine – which she is guest-hosting his week. Speaking about the Brits, he said: 'The best thing about last year was that everyone was absolutely pissed and the people you expect to be really rowdy, but it was [Phillip] Schofield and [Holly] Willoughby who were the most drunk, they put them all to shame.'
