Award-winning comedian, actor and writer Jack Whitehall has announced two shows at the Bonus Arena, Hull next month.
Tickets for the shows at 3pm and 7.30pm on Sunday, 8 December go on sale on Monday at 10am.
Following two complete sell-out arena tours, Jack Whitehall Gets Around in 2014 and Jack Whitehall: At Large in 2017 (which premiered on Netflix), Jack Whitehall: Stood Up will be Jack’s biggest-ever live tour, now taking in 47 dates and promising to be the most hilarious yet from one of comedy’s most electric talents.
Jack Whitehall said previously: “I couldn’t be more thrilled to be going back out on the road. There’s no feeling like standing up on stage in front of an arena full of strangers, and still being able to hear your dad heckle you.”
Widely celebrated for his hit show Travels With My Father (which recently returned to Netflix for a new series), Jack has most recently been seen in Lasse Hallstrom’s The Nutcracker And The Four Realms opposite Keira Knightley, Helen Mirren, and Morgan Freeman and in Series 2 of Sky series Bounty Hunters, as well as Good Omens (Amazon) opposite Jon Hamm and Michael Sheen. He is also set to star in Disney’s upcoming movie Jungle Cruise opposite Dwayne Johnson and Emily Blunt, which will be released in 2020.
His television credits include: Decline & Fall (BBC), Fresh Meat (Channel 4), and Bad Education (BBC), Backchat, A League Of Their Own (which received a BAFTA Award in 2014 for ‘Best Comedy Entertainment Program’ and was nominated in the same category in 2013), Stand Up For The Week, and Live At The Apollo.
An established presenter, Jack has hosted a number of prestigious award ceremonies and television series, becoming the youngest ever host of the Royal Variety Performance in 2015. He hosted the BRIT Awards for a second time earlier this year and has also hosted The British Fashion Awards in 2014, 2015, 2016, and 2017, and the BAFTA Britannia Awards in 2015, 2017, and 2018. He became the first-ever guest host of The Graham Norton Show in May.

The arena is scheduled to open during the summer of 2018. The building is owned by Hull City Council and will be managed by SMG Europe, a world leader in venue management, operation and marketing with more than 220 venues worldwide, including Manchester Arena, Metro Radio Arena Newcastle, First Direct Arena Leeds, The Baths Hall and The Plowright Theatre Scunthorpe.
