Jason said: “I’m really chuffed to be adding so many more shows in so many different places. I’m sure I must be covering the whole of the UK and Ireland by now! It’s gonna be a great laugh and I can’t wait to get back to some cracking venues, especially when we see how it flies in some of the country’s best arenas. Come along, bring your pals, your teenagers, your folks and I promise we will have a cracking night together.”
In addition to the new tour, Jason hosts his ratings-winning three-hour live show on Absolute Radio every Sunday morning. He recently hosted the critically acclaimed Sunday night primetime ITV1 game show, Bigheads. As well as The Nightly Show on ITV1.
On 6th October Jason released his debut album ‘A Different Stage’ on Decca Records. Inspired by Manford’s love for musical theatre, ‘A Different Stage’ ranges from show tunes he has performed in the past, to songs that are close to his heart and some of his childhood favourites. It will feature a rendition of ‘On The Street Where You Live’ from My Fair Lady, ‘Hushabye Mountain’ from Chitty Chitty Bang Bang, ‘Stars’ from Les Misérables and ‘The Impossible Dream’ from the 1965 hit Broadway musical Man of La Mancha.
In what little spare time he has, Jason runs Manford’s Comedy Club with his brother Colin. Showcasing the best comedians of the moment – both established names and the stars of tomorrow – to audiences across the country. Since its launch three years ago, Manford’s Comedy Club has gone from strength to strength and booked over 300 comedians to entertain more than 45,000 people in over 60 different venues around the UK.
