Tickets go on sale today for Jason Manford in Barrow
Last updated at 16:46, Thursday, 06 March 2014
Tickets go on sale today for yet another famous comedy name heading for Cumbria.
Fans can snap up tickets to see Jason Manford perform at The Forum, in Barrow, from 9am this morning.
Manford will bring his ‘First World Problems’ tour to the town on June 2 and 3, this year, with tickets priced at £22.50.
The well-known stand-up will bring anecdotes, comic misunderstandings and audience banter delivered with his trademark likeable charm and teasingly intelligent wit.
It's a boomerage back to comedy after Jason's opera singing saw him emerge the winner on ITV's Born To Shine. He put his new found talent into practice joining Alfie Boe on tour prior to a well-received run in the West-End hit musical Sweeney Todd. However, his comedy bones weren’t completely idle as he enjoyed appearances on QI, Big Fat Quiz of the Year, and Channel 4's Comedy World Cup.
Jason said: “Some of you might think I’ve had a career change what with all the opera and musical theatre I’ve been doing lately. Not a chance, I’m excited to be getting back to what I really love the stand up sets on ‘Live at the Apollo’ (BBC One), ‘Michael McIntyre’s Comedy Roadshow’ (BBC One) and ‘The Royal Variety Performance’ (ITV1, 2009) have all helped establish Jason as a nationally known comic, a position which made him the ideal host of ITV’s reality comedy competition, Show Me the Funny. A second series of his hilarious creation ‘Walk on the Wild Side’ (BBC One) aired in 2010, and Jason has hosted ‘Comedy Rocks with Jason Manford’ (ITV1) and been a regular panelist on two series of ‘Odd One In’ (ITV1).
He has received a torrent of praise over the last year.
The Daily Telegraph said: “He's blessed with the sort of laid-back charm and sharp turn of phrase you can't manufacture”.
The Evening Standard reviewed him as: “Effortlessly entertaining”.
