Well, hello there……

Miles is appearing at the Edinburgh Fringe festival this year from 3rd to 12th August interviewing and larking about with a different guest each day that Miles likes and finds interesting and thinks you should too. Those are the criteria, really. It should be a healthy combination of conversation, seriousness, silliness, slander and anecdote. Or it might be chaos. It’s all in the lap of the Gods. Or, more realistically,  it’s up to Miles to make it work.

Here’s the line up of guests so far…

 

3rd: Alex Macqueen. Julius in The Thick Of It, Neil’s Dad in The Inbetweeners, Edmund in Hunderby, an eccentric in day to day life.

Miles’ new book is now out. Egg And Soldiers is the fictional childhood memoir of Miles’ cookery writer creation Damien Trench from the series In And Out Of The Kitchen. It details his baffling and often excruciating upbringing in North West London and includes recipes, anecdotes, some wildly tangential opinions about the state of the nation as well as multiple references to panic attacks and the digestive system. You can order it here. Or you might conceivably prefer to order it from here.

Miles’ 2014 stand up show  - Miles Jupp Is The Chap You’re Thinking Of – is available as a DVD and instant download. You can buy either version right here. The show was toured all over the UK to big and delightful audiences and played in London’s West End to rather lovely reviews.  This special version of the show was filmed in Margate at the beautiful Theatre Royal. And right here there’s a clip. Hurrah.

The DVD and the CD of the live show of Fibber In The Heat – Miles’ tale about idiotically blagging his way into the press corp during an England cricket tour of India – have now been released by Go Faster Stripe. The show was originally performed at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival in 2010 where it received over 20 four star reviews, and Miles subsequently performed the show on two tours of the UK. You can buy it here.

Miles’ book about the trip was shortlisted for both The William Hill Sports Book Of The Year and the MCC and Cricket Society Book Of The Year in 2012 and a second edition has now been released. You could buy that here. If you would like to.
