Miles Jupp: Telling it Like it Might be
Mr Nice Guy is generous with the laughs
This article is from 2009.
Playing on his persona as a harmlessly posh good egg, the sort you’d happily leave your kids with, Jupp crafts tales of his failings and faux pas, mishaps visited on him and his own ineptitudes into a rolling onslaught of rib-tickling yarns. Designed to subvert our preconceptions of a middle class ninny, even his swearing can’t convince that he is anything other than a lovely, albeit very funny, gent.
