Actor, writer and comedian Miles Jupp will be heading to Kettering Arts Centre on Saturday, March 1, as part of his latest tour.

Miles is making a return to stand-up and this will be his first live UK tour since the successful Fibber In The Heat, which was performed in London’s West End in 2012.

He has been busy since then appearing on shows such as Have I got News For You, The News Quiz and Mock The Week, as well as acting in Alan Bennett’s People at the National Theatre for eight months.

In his latest show, Miles will be discussing subjects as varied as himself, domestic imprisonment and fatherhood, hot drinks, housing, ill health, the ageing process and other people’s pants... among other things.

A spokesman said: “Bits of it will be quite mild-mannered and some of it will probably be a tad on the stroppy side. It’s a man, standing on a stage, facing an audience, talking about some things and ultimately aiming to cover the cost of his white goods.”

Miles’ other credits include having played Nigel in Rev, John Duggan in The Thick Of It and Owen in Spy as well as appearing in Michael Winterbottom’s The Look Of Love and George Clooney’s The Monuments Men.

A regular on Radio 4, he also hosts the panel show It’s Not What You Know, and his sitcom In And Out Of The Kitchen was nominated for a Writers’ Guild Award.

Tickets cost £15 or £13 for concessions. The show will start at 8pm. See The show is said to be recommended for those aged 12 and above. Kettering Arts Centre can be found in Rockingham Road.
