Comedian Jason Manford today announces a brand new UK tour for 2018. 'Muddle Class' promises to feature a wealth of new material about Jason’s life growing up ‘working class’, then finding that as he’s got older, part of him has become ‘middle class’, causing much confusion! Delivered with Jason’s amiable charm and captivating wit, this is a show not to be missed. Tickets go on-sale on Friday 21 April at 10am.
Jason said: “Somebody said to me on my Facebook fan page, 'it's been ages since you've toured'. I thought 'no way, it was last year wasn't it?'
"Anyway, long story short, they were right, it was years ago! I just got fooled cos I've been on tour doing musicals and the last tour is repeated on Dave ja Vu 13 times a day!
"So I’ve been putting some stuff together, looking at my life and how it's changed over the years, how the world has changed and how my parents haven't changed a bit! It's going to be a great tour and I can't wait to see you there.”
‘Muddle Class’ follows Jason’s hugely successful 2013/4 ‘First World Problems’ tour, which ran for 18 months and took him to all corners of the British Isles, performing more than 200 sold out shows.
Since then, Jason has had a very busy time with a variety of projects. He revisited the world of musicals to great critical acclaim. Firstly starring as Leo Bloom in the UK tour of Mel Brooks' 'The Producers'. And then in the starring role of Caractacus Potts in the UK tour of ‘Chitty Chitty Bang Bang’. Jason also returned to the world of radio, hosting his massively popular three-hour live show on Absolute every Sunday morning, which consistently delivers huge ratings.
This year has been non-stop too. After finishing Chitty in February, Jason went straight into hosting a brand new Sunday night primetime TV game show called Bigheads. The series beings on ITV1 on Sunday 23 April for six weeks. Most recently he presented the prestigious Olivier Awards (ITV1), before jumping into hosting duties for week seven of The Nightly Show (ITV1). Next month, Jason can also been seen guest starring in the new series of Benidorm (ITV1).
In what little spare time he has, Jason runs Manford’s Comedy Club with his brother Colin. Showcasing the best comedians of the moment - both established names and the stars of tomorrow - to audiences across the country. Since its launch three years ago, Manford’s Comedy Club has gone from strength to strength and booked over 300 comedians to entertain more than 45,000 people in over 60 different venues around the UK.
