MILES JUPP – JANUARY 9
The perils of day-to-day life are brought into sharp focus as popular stand-up comedian, writer and panel show favourite Miles Jupp brings his live show to Norwich.
He is promising to tackle a wide range of topics and share his despair about elements of modern life in the show Songs Of Freedom on Monday 9 January at the Theatre Royal.
And Miles is promising to cover a wide range of subjects including “a rant about me, you, domestic imprisonment, fatherhood, having to have opinions, hot drinks, the government, bad balance, housing, ill health, the ageing process, navigation and other people’s pants. I don’t want people to think I am a fretter though. I am more of a despairer.”
He is probably best known as the host of BBC Radio Four’s The News Quiz where he valiantly attempts to keep order as comedians, writers, satirists and the occasional political figure aim to make sense of (and poke fun at) current affairs.
But he has also made a number of TV appearances playing the fussy Nigel in Rev, Captain Fanshaw in Gary Tank Commander, John Duggan in The Thick Of It, and minor celebrity chef Damian Trench in the self-penned In And Out Of The Kitchen.
Miles also played the Valet of Greystoke in the movie The Legend of Tarzan, and will play Blackberry in the upcoming BBC adaptation of Watership Down as part of a strong cast that also includes Sir Ben Kingsley, Gemma Arterton, and John Boyega who was in Star Wars: The Force Awakens.
John Bultitude, of Norwich Theatre Royal, said: “After the excesses of Christmas, what better way to start 2017 than in the company of Miles Jupp? Share in his mix of wonder and despair at modern life and chuckle along as he highlights the ridiculous aspects of just about everything.”
Miles Jupp, Monday 9 January at 7.30pm. Tickets £7-£17. Discounts for Friends.
