Miles’ credits extend from Balamory to Rev. to R4’s guessing game It’s Not What You Know. The acclaimed stand up and host of The News Quiz has also appeared in films The Monuments Men and Made in Dagenham, and on the West End stage. Live, Miles looks at the world, and in particular the English regions, with utter incomprehension.


Biography

The name Miles Jupp conjures up different images to different audiences. For those of a certain age he is Archie the inventor in Balamory; to others he is Nigel the lay minister of the hit ecclesiastical sitcom Rev. He’s also a regular on everything from Have I Got News For You to Just A Minute.

Miles’ onstage persona combines the urbane, upper-crust manners that come with a privileged upbringing with railing against the everyday frustrations of banks, computer support, politicians and married life. Acutely aware of his poshness (and the problems it creates), he sees the world with a quiet detachment - cut through with marvellous irony.

The new host of Radio 4 institution The News Quiz, Miles’ other broadcast credits include playing a hapless press officer in The Thick of It (with a fringe ‘to hide the lobotomy scar’ according to Malcolm Tucker). He also appeared in Sky’s hit comedy Spy, and the films The King of Soho, The Monuments Men, and Made in Dagenham. Radio 4 listeners also know him as Damien Trench in In And Out Of The Kitchen (a sit-com based around the life of a food writer), and It’s Not What You Know (a panel show where celebrities test their knowledge of the people that know them best). Miles has also written a book, Fibber in the Heat, about his escapades during an England cricket tour of India when he bluffed his way into the press corp.
