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?

CHRIS WASHINGTON


Chris began performing stand up comedy in July 2012, and after 2 years and a few hundred gigs for a host of reputable promoters up and down the country he is fast becoming one of the most sought after new acts on the circuit. With a cheeky Northern charm and hilarious tales it’s clear to see why Chris is flying up the comedy ladder.

JASON COOK


Be ready for pretty much anything when Jason Cook takes to the stage. Behind his cheerful Geordie exterior lurks a dark, sharp comedic mind capable of taking an unsuspecting audience to places they didn’t want to go. Jason has a way of presenting true-to-life stories that drag you in and won’t let go, close to the edge but always intriguing and blessed with the sort of charm that’ll have you laughing in spite of yourself.

At the same time Jason can cater to any audience with his prolific writing and irresistible charm.


MATT BRAGG


Through laconic, dry humour, delivered with precision timing Matt Bragg is experienced and making waves:  supporting Harry Hill and being noticed by a whole host of comedians and promoters on the circuit, his unique and engaging storytelling leaves the audience hanging on the edge, listening intently.
