Series 9 - Episode 5 Jack Whitehall, Katherine Ryan, Rich Hall



Is it me or has Jack Whitehall overdone it a bit lately? The plummy comic is everywhere you look – panel games, sitcoms, chat shows (several of each), comedy awards, plus his own show on BBC3 with his dad. He has become inescapable. (Anyone would think he had a book out for Christmas.)

Here, in an edition postponed from December, he kicks off the bombastic stand-up show with a frantic routine about his experience with a cheese strudel on a German airline. It’s not in itself hilarious and in lesser hands could fall flat but Whitehall powers it home through sheer, over-caffeinated energy.

Then Canadian comedian Katherine Ryan gets things going with a much better routine: her impression of Beyoncé going to the grocery store is worth seeing.


An evening of stand-up at the Apollo in Hammersmith, London. Jack Whitehall is the man in charge, treating the audience to his own brand of humour, before introducing routines by Canadian comedienne Katherine Ryan and American jokester Rich Hall.
