Perrier Award nominated comedian Miles Jupp will be appearing in St Albans next week.
The stand-up star is performing at the Alban Arena on Sunday, June 1.
Miles uses his toff persona to great comedic effect, combining superbly patronising remarks with ungainly attempts at laddish.
Actor, comedian and writer, Jupp started performing stand-up on the Scottish circuit in 2000, and the following year won both So You Think You’re Funny and The Leicester Mercury Comedian Of The Year.
He soon became a regular performer on both series of BBC Scotland’s Live Floor Show, and he was nominated for the Perrier Best Newcomer award for his debut Edinburgh solo show, Gentlemen Prefer Brogues.
After appearances in Harry Potter and The Order of The Phoenix, Sherlock Holmes, CBeebies’ Balamory and BBC2’s Rev, Jupp returned to stand-up in 2007 and has since appeared on Never Mind The Buzzcocks, Have I Got News For You and Mock The Week.
In Miles Jupp: Is The Chap You’re Thinking Of, the comedian rants about himself, you, domestic imprisonment, fatherhood, having to have opinions, hot drinks, the Government, bad balance, housing, ill health, the ageing process, navigation, other people’s pants and, inevitably, a number of other things.
Tickets cost £15 and the show starts at 8pm.
