Jack Whitehall (and family) announce extra live dates

With tales of their travels

Jack Whitehall has announced new tour dates with his parentsHilary and Michael.

The four new performances of their How To Survive Family Holidays in Portsmouth, Southend, Ipswich and Derby will go on sale at 10am tomorrow

Based on the book of the same title, the live shows are described as ‘Lonely Planet meets family memoir’, as it draws on the family anecdotes from their experience of travelling together, as documented on the Netflix show Travels With My Father. 

Whitehall says: ‘The truth about any holiday – if it’s with one's own family – is that no amount of sunshine, wine or festive spirit will stop your worst character traits coming to the surface.

‘You have just volunteered to spend a week in close proximity with the people who know you best and who will never ever let you forget it. No one survives unscathed. Things are always going to end in tears: you can only hope they're of laughter.

‘Interest in my family only seems to grow, despite my best endeavours to silence them.’

Jack’s parents say: ‘OK, Jack has thrown us under the bus but at least he has given us the chance to tell our side of the story.’
