Award-winning comedian Miles Jupp is set to bring his new show, Fibber In The Heat, to the West Country next year.
A few years ago, disillusioned with comedy and acting, Miles decided he was going to pack it all in to follow his dream to become a cricket journalist.
After pulling a few strings and telling some whopping fibs, Miles couldn’t believe his luck when he found himself heading to India with the English sporting press to embark on a month-long cricket tour with his heroes.
Jupp might be known as a stand-up, but this isn’t that sort of show, with laughs that ebb and flow with the narrative. It’s an enthralling story about following your dreams, meeting your heroes and struggling to fit in.
While children will recognise Jupp as Archie The Inventor in Balamory, he actually started his career with victories in two new act competitions in 2001 – Channel 4’s So You Think You’re Funny and the Leicester Festival of The Year award.
Two years later he was nominated for the Perrier Best Newcomer Award for his show Gentlemen Prefer Brogues.
On TV his upper-class persona landed him regular apperances on BBC Scotland’s Live Floor Show and he has appeared on Paramount’s The World Stands Up and Channel 4’s You Must Be Joking. Most recently, he has appeared on the BBC quiz shows Mock The Week and Have I Got News For You.
