Welcome to the Hippodrome

  One of the UK's largest community run theatres

 Next Show 19th July 2019

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?
