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?

GAVIN WEBSTER

Gavin Webster is a blunt-talking Geordie who calls a shovel a shovel, a no-nonsense attitude that instantly wins over his audience. His humour is sharp and hard-hitting, a quick succession of gags; some weather-beaten old favourites, some surrealist leaps of imagination. 

Gavin started in comedy as half a double act, going solo in 1995. He was team captain in Channel 4’s Does Doug Know? and is an established name on the circuit, supporting Lee EvansJack Dee and Phill Jupitus on tour.

STEVE SHANYASKI
    “LOL’ing all over at him” – Sara Cox, Radio 1
His whirlwind performances and thrilling routines have constantly proven a hit with even the quietest crowds… The key to his act being his energy and silliness.
He has performed his comedy throughout the world: to an audience as diverse as bikers in a field, to royalty in a theatre, and never ceases to go down a storm.
