Hollywood star Jack Whitehall has forged a successful movie career with roles in films including ‘Jungle Cruise’ and ‘Clifford the Big Red Dog’, but he shared his fears that his old stand-up jokes could come back to haunt him.

Speaking on the ‘Irishman Abroad’ podcast, Whitehall said: “I feel like I’ve definitely said jokes in the past that would be worthy of cancellation. I guess it’s how you weather that storm if it does ever come up.

“I’ve had it, sort of, occur a few times and I think, maybe, people are a little better now. We’ve had a few of these ridiculous cancellations of people because of historic jokes that, especially with a comedian because it was told in jest and the context of it was only ever intended as a joke, that you do tend to get away with it a little bit more.

“More so than you might with a tweet or a comment in an interview.”

“It’s important for me to go away and live my life and come back to it when I’ve got more stuff to talk about. I need to try and find something else that’s going to be interesting and different and a subject matter I can write something and it will feel funny and fresh.”
