Hot young comedy talent Jack Whitehall is setting out on his first ever live stand-up arena tour, performing across the country.

He makes his debut at Sheffield’s Motorpoint Arena on Thursday, March 13, and the Derbyshire Times is giving away tickets to his show.

Jack Whitehall Gets Around is a new show that will see Jack performing ‘in the round’, a UK first for a solo stand-up tour. This tour is his first since his critically acclaimed sell out 2011 stand-up show, Let’s Not Speak Of This Again.

Over the last few years, Jack has firmly established himself as one of the country’s most successful young talents. He cut his teeth at the Edinburgh Fringe, taking up four sell-out shows over three consecutive years and earning an Edinburgh Comedy Award nomination in the process with his debut show Jack Whitehall: Learning Difficulties.

Jack has gone on to host Live At The Apollo and perform at the Royal Variety Performance, as well as the internationally prestigious Just for Laughs Comedy Festival in Canada. In addition, he has been nominated by Variety as one of the ’10 Comics to Watch’ and in December 2012 won the King of Comedy award at the annual British Comedy Awards.

In addition to his stand-up, Jack has also built a successful TV and writing career. As well as his role playing JP in the award-winning C4 series Fresh Meat, Jack has written and stars in the acclaimed BBC3 sitcom Bad Education and is a panellist on Sky1’s hit show, A League Of Their Own.
