Jack Whitehall

Jack Whitehall Headshot

Actor • Comedian • Writer

Birth Date: July 7, 1988

Age: 35 years old

Birth Place: London, England, UK

Comedian and TV host Jack Whitehall has become a fixture on British quiz shows and the stand-up circuit where he uses his sharp wit to riff on contemporary society. He is also well known to British audiences as a frequent quiz show panelist on programs such as "8 Out of 10 Cats" and host of "Big Brother's Big Mouth." Whitehall was born to a father who was a producer and agent to stars such as Judi Dench and Colin Firth and became a child actor, appearing on shows such as the comedic drama "The Good Guys" in 1993 and "Noah's Ark" in '97. Eventually after developing his stand-up act, he realized that he was better suited to telling jokes than acting and got his break as the host of "Celebrity Big Brother's Big Mouth" in 2006. Throughout the rest of the decade Whitehall parlayed his quick wit into appearances on topical comedy programs like "Never Mind the Buzzcocks," "Mock The Week" and "8 Out of 10 Cats." He was also becoming one of the industry's most popular stand-up acts, honing his skills at the Edinburgh Festival and in numerous TV shows, among them "The Sunday Night Project," "Stand Up for the Week," and "Dave's One Night Stand." Whitehall also still occasionally acts, taking on a regular role in the comedy/drama "Fresh Meat" in 2011.
