Follows Jack Whitehall as he embarks on the trip of a lifetime with his father, Michael. The two set off on a journey across South East Asia to partake in a series of adventures, mishaps and escapades with two very different perspectives.
Patton Oswalt, despite a personal tragedy, produces his best standup yet. Focusing on the tribulations of the Trump era and life after the loss of a loved one, Oswalt continues his journey to contribute joy to the world.
It seemed the stage was an unnatural situation for Jack to be in.
The show opens with cabaret dances and Jack announcing that it's "show business". Indeed, it is show business and it's a tough gig.
As Jack shouts out his punch lines, cutting through the awkwardness of his stage presence as he quickly transitions onto the next joke. His irony, wit, epiphanies, etc. were juvenile and lacking.
I like Jack, 'Travel with my Father' was entertaining though at times Jack's behaviour was cringe worthy.
Bottom line, Jack is not a good story teller.
