Miles Jupp at Latitude

Miles was late. He was 'putting an offer in on a second home in the area'.
As it was that sentiment - middle class woes - which ran through Miles Jupp's 35 minute set in the comedy tent.
The setting couldn't had been any better for a monotone rant about the problems facing a dad-of-four struggling to come to terms with his lost youth and freedom.
The festival crowd - full of edgy mums and dads, with their trendy children donning floral headbands - lapped up the jokes about life with 2.4 children and the dreaded dishwasher.
Miles was different to his Have got I Got News For You persona.
But his dead-pan and self-deprecating manner was a vision of a man on the edge and a great skit.
'Too much to do', 'no time for myself' he said.

We all recognised his middle England life as we sat in the sun on our Cath Kidston chairs.
Poor Miles, domestic life can be a bore.
I just wonder what the nanny thought.
