Miles Jupp

Tell a friend:

17th February 2011 - 8pm

Venue: Loughborough Town Hall

Fibber in the Heat

Presented as part of the Leicester Comedy Festival

Miles Jupp is an award winning stand up and actor who has recently appeared in the feature film Made in Dagenham and the BBC’s The Thick of It, Mock The Week, Michael McIntryre's Comedy Roadshow as well as appearing as a regular character in Rev.  Some fans may even remember his fondly from CBeebies weirdly compelling Balamory!!

His latest show resulted from a journalistic adventure.  Pulling a few strings and telling some little lies, an unprepared and unqualified Jupp heads to India with the English press to embark on a month long, sun-soaked disaster (and some minor triumphs).

So unfolds a sorry tale of how he attempted to become a cricket journalist by the unlikely, ill –thought out and dishonest method of pretending to be one.

Take a look at this recent review in The Guardian  here

“Jupp poignantly and humorously captures that awful sense of desperation in knowing that you don’t belong somewhere ..he is a wonderful storyteller…bloody marvellous” **** Fest

“It’s a classic fish out of water tale” **** The Times

“It’s a little like watching an Evelyn Waugh character narrate his hopeless exploits before your very eyes – pure class” **** The Daily Telegraph

This tale is not only cricket fans and journalists  – it's a tale for lovers in the wider sense, for anyone who has ever been a fan and of the boundaries they'll cross.

Suitable Age 16+
