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?


Previous Line-up...


Comedian. Actor. Dog Walker. Parent. Sometimes on your telly, never on your drive. Has own teeth and is left handed. Best known for winning Celebrity Mastermind in 2011 on his chosen subject Les Dawson, Justin has also appeared in Peter Kaye's Phoenix Nights, played Dean Upton in Coronation Street and wrote and starred in the Radio 4 sitcom Everyone Quite Likes Justin. And so will you, if the reviews of his current tour are anything to go by. 



Colin Manford is a north-west comedian (and Jason’s little brother!) Writer and actor/presenter who loves to tell stories from his own unique perspective, from his failed relationships to his weird and wonderful family life. A very strong MC who connects with his audience and adapts to any situation. Colin's enjoying a growing reputation at the top UK clubs as well as The Czech Republic, Croatia, Slovenia & Romania. A true International Man of Comedy.

Callum Oakley's TV debut came in 2012 making it to the semi-finals of Britain’s Got Talent where he performed live on ITV1, provoking judge David Walliams to say he had never seen a comic 'so young and so brilliant'. Callum now travels the UK with his professional stand–up act Young and Lively, combining  side-splitting gags, observational story-telling and physical acts. 
Ste Porter

Since arriving on the circuit in early 2007 Ste Porter is now a professional comedian - a meteoric rise in such a short time.

His affable style both relaxes and delights audiences and his quick wit make him a great compere and a great crowd-pleaser. He currently holds the resident MC at The Slaughterhouse, Liverpool and The Slug and Lettuce. He is widely regarded as Liverpool's next big comedy talent.
