Jack Whitehall - Live at Soho Theatre 9 July 2016


Jack Whitehall played at London's Soho Theatre, on Saturday, in preparation of his upcoming UK arena tour 'At Large' in February 2017. Making his own personal announcement and welcoming himself to the stage, Whitehall played to an intimate 140 seater capacity venue.

Jack Whitehall - Live at Soho Theatre 9 July 2016

Opening up his set by recalling his recent trip to the U.S. and telling us how he tried to break America only for his efforts to be thwarted by continual misfortune. Whitehall was off to a great start and continued by regaling us with his excitement in seeing a fellow passenger watching his DVD while up in the air. Nonetheless the comedian's proud moment was ruined, as the person in question, turned off his DVD after 5 minutes instead choosing to watch the in-flight entertainment.

Hotels were the next topic of focus as Jack explained how he had to switch hotels while on tour. He actively showed how he loved staying away from home because of the "hotel freebies" he received. Listing many of the "freebies" he had gained while on tour that included a surprise which he pulled out of his back pocket to the astonishment of audience members.

The Bad Education Movie Trailer


The end of GCSE exams is approaching and, while many students around the country will be preparing for a messy weekend in Magaluf, it's a guarantee that none of their antics will match those of Mr. Wickers and his troublemaking class. He's always been a terrible teacher, but for Alfie Wickers, a true adventure is needed to seal his unbreakable bond with his tearaway pupils - and so it's off to Cornwall they go, to the chagrin of the kids' worried mothers. It might seem like an innocent school trip, but they're forced to prepare themselves for some unexpected incidents involving seriously menacing farmer locals, as well as Alfie's ruthless old school chums. It gets even worse when the group go missing, and wind up wanted by police and all over the news. But it still could go down as the best school trip ever.

Jack Whitehall's Jonathan Ross Phone Number Gag Lands Him In Trouble


Jack Whitehall

Jack Whitehall's ill-fated appearance on The Big Quiz of The Year - Channel 4's popular panel show - has reached new lows, as a gag which included him writing down a made up number, and pretending it was Jonathan Ross's, has caused an innocent member of the public a great deal of stress, The Telegraph reports.

The number actually belongs to a Mr Sagar, from London. He said: "On the night it was shown I started getting calls with abuse from people who hate Jonathan Ross. I also had calls from people who thought I was Jack Whitehall or James Corden, who was on Whitehall's team. I didn't even bother going to work on Monday because I knew my phone wouldn't stop ringing and I couldn't switch it off because a relative is ill and I needed to be contactable. Ofcom said they would look into it and suggested I changed my number, but I paid a lot of money for it because it is a very easy number to remember so I'm not doing that. I'll just have to wait for things to die down."

The trouble started when Whitehall, in response to one of the questions, said: "We didn't know what the answer was so we thought it would be funny instead to write down Jonathan's mobile number on our screen. Call him whenever you want."

Will Jack Whitehall Resign As Television Awards Presenter Over Complaints?


Jack Whitehall James Corden Jonathan Ross

Jack Whitehall is reportedly under pressure to stand down as presenter of a prize at the National Television Awards later in January following complaints about his performance on Channel 4's Big Fat Quiz Of The Year. His suitability for the appearance was called in question by NTA presenter George Mitchell who told the Daily Mail (who else?) that he wanted to hold a "summit conference" to decide if Whitehall should still be invited.

The furore began when an indignant article in the aforementioned newspaper criticised Channel 4's broadcast. It slammed lewd jokes about The Queen, the Duke of Edinburgh, President Barack Obama, sprinter Usain Bolt and the singer Susan Boyle. Mitchell said he feared the controversy could "run and run" and offered Whitehall "the chance to withdraw." 

However, creator and executive producer of the NTA (i.e, somebody with more power than Mitchell) told The Independent, "Contrary to spurious reports earlier today, I would like to confirm that there has been no crisis summit over Jack Whitehall's invitation to present an award at this year's National Television Awards. We are very much looking forward to welcoming him on January 23 for our live show."
