Jack Whitehall: Travels with My Father

Travels With My Father sees comedian Jack Whitehall tick a few things off his bucket list while bonding with his father, retired theatrical agent Michael Whitehall, who begrudgingly obliges to his son's antics.

Their clashing yet somehow perfectly complementary personalities—Jack's goofiness and Michael's dry wit—make this an entertaining and enjoyable watch.
