Born into a theatrical family, Jack Whitehall initially worked as a child actor in various television dramas but shortly after leaving school he decided to pursue a career in stand up comedy. Six months later, aged 18, he beat over 600 contestants to become the youngest ever comedian to reach the final of the prestigious Laughing Horse New Act competition for which he finished runner up. In addition, he battled his way through a tense two night London competition to secure a place on the Pleasance Comedy Reserve. Whilst at the Fringe, he reached the final of Channel 5’s 'So You Think You’re Funny?' and was crowned the youngest ever Winner of The Amused Moose New Act of the Year, leading Time Out to pinpoint him as “a rising star.” With a host of competition titles and an array of live appearances under his belt, this so-called ‘newcomer’ has guest hosted 'Never Mind the Buzzcocks', co-wrote and hosted 'TNT Show' on Channel 4 in 2009. In 2009 he hosted 'Celebrity Big Brother’s Big Mouth' for its three week run live on E4. Other television appearances include 'You Have Been Watching', 'Would I Lie to You?', '8 Out of 10 Cats', 'Mock the Week', 'The Graham Norton Show' as well as 'A Comedy Roast' and Channel 4’s 'Comedy Gala' filmed at the O2. Jack also filmed an exciting show for C4 called 'Stand Up For The Week', in which he and a clutch of other top comics gave their views on topical events each week. He has also made several appearances on 'Michael Mcintyre’s Comedy Roadshow'.
