MILES Jupp is to embark on his first tour in seven years and the show will detail how he survived a brain tumour.

The English actor, singer, and comedian will be at The Haymarket Thursday, January 18 

Since Miles’ last tour finished at The London Palladium in 2017, he’s been in The Full Monty on Disney Plus, The Durrells and Why Didn’t They Ask Evans? on ITV, as well as a heap of episodes of Frankie Boyle’s New World Order and Have I Got News For You.

He’s made an award-winning radio series and he’s published a novel. But for Covid, he would have played a lead at the Royal Shakespeare Company. Nevertheless, he’s done a play in the West End and played the Emperor of Austria and Europe in a Ridley Scott film.

Yet one sunny day in the middle of all this, he suddenly suffered a brain seizure. This led to the discovery of a tumour the size of a cherry tomato, and a rather pressing need to undergo major neurosurgery. The experience has left him with a story to tell and a few things that he’d like to share with the room. So that’s exactly what he’s doing in his new show On I Bang – a tale about surprise, fear, luck, love and qualified medical practitioners.  

Miles' previous tours include the acclaimed Fibber In The Heat, Miles Jupp is The Chap You’re Thinking Of and Songs Of Freedom.

As an actor, comedian and writer, Miles’ work spans theatre, film, TV, radio, books and stand-up. He recently starred in the Disney+ series The Full Monty and can soon be seen in the Belgravia sequel.

Miles has contributed to a number of BBC Radio 4 shows including The News Quiz, which he hosted for four years, his own sketch series Whatever Next and In And Out Of The Kitchen, which he wrote and created. He is the author of three books, the most recent of which is a novel, History.
