A message from Jason Manford
“Manford’s Comedy Club know comedy. We do it well. Over the past few years, we’ve entertained tens of thousands of people. Our comedy nights really are second to none.
There is a circuit of brilliant comics in this country who haven’t been on telly for a number of reasons, but I want you to know them, I want you to enjoy them! Maybe they’re up and coming, maybe they were on a late-night stand up show in the 80′s and called the host a nobhead, or maybe they just have a severe drinking problem… Either way, there are funny people out there who thrive in the live arena and want to make you laugh on a regular basis, so I’m going to tell you who they are.
My plan is this: I’m going to carefully select some of my favourite comedians and send them to local towns, and give you the best night out you’ve had for a long time!
Anyway, enough about that. We’ll see you there. Keep on laughing’ folks, and remember, there’s nothing like live!
Cheers, Jason x “

PLEASE NOTE THAT JASON MANFORD WILL NOT BE APPEARING AT THESE EVENTS
Manford's comedy clubs, which can be found all across the country, were devised by the stand-up himself after realising that, for some reason, comedy was further down on the 'to do' list for a night out then ten-pin bowling. Aimed at showcasing truly good comedian who are working the circuit, it's all about Manford's favourite comedians getting together to make you laugh. What more could you want?

Affable, quick-witted banter merchant, Dave Twentyman survived a childhood in St Helens by evolving rapid, startlingly-bright patter and a smile that he somehow stole from Barry Manilow. This is a man who could teach Teflon a trick-or-two but who remains vastly more fun than your average frying-pan. What higher praise can there be?
A regular performer at many of the best weekend clubs in the country, Dave has also performed at a number of music festivals over the years such as Leeds, V Festival and Download
