Comedian Jack Whitehall, 31, is best known for his stand-up shows as well as roles as a student in Channel 4’s Fresh Meat. The star mocks his own poshness in his gigs and has charmed the public with his plummy accent. Most recently however he has appeared alongside his dad for even more hilarious antics.
Michael Whitehall is an English television producer, talent agent, television personality and author.
He was a successful agent for the likes of Judi Dench, Colin Firth, and Richard Griffiths, and has written a memoir called Shark Infested Waters: Tales of an Actors’ Agent, which Jack also illustrated.
However, more recently he has starred alongside his son Jack in the Netflix comedy documentary series Jack Whitehall: Travels with My Father, becoming a TV personality in his own right.
The pair are starring in a special BBC programme called Jack Whitehall’s Father’s Day on Friday, which will include seeing the duo compete for the Masterchef title from home.
