Things not to miss in Doncaster Jason Manford appearing at The Doncaster Dome, November 17.
Jason Manford is a multi-talented man. He is equally gifted as a TV and radio presenter, singer, actor, and musicals star. But now, I’m very pleased to report, Jason is returning to his first love: stand-up comedy. He is embarking on “Muddle Class”, his first nationwide tour in some years, and he couldn’t be more delighted about it.
The comedian, who is just as funny away from the microphone as on it, takes time out of his busy schedule to chat to me in the run-up to the tour. He begins by expressing his pleasure about the prospect of returning to live comedy. “Out of everything I do, stand-up is the job I love most. It’s great to be returning to the freedom of being in charge of what I say and do. It’s just lovely to be back!” Jason’s legions of fans up and down the country will be equally glad about his return to stand-up. One of the most gifted live comedians in the UK, he enjoys a wonderful rapport with his audience. A naturally talented comic, Jason is one of those rare acts who simply has to walk on stage to have everyone in fits of laughter. He just possesses “funny bones”. After spending two hours in his company, the world seems like a happier place. The critics agree. The Evening Standard describe Jason as, “Effortlessly entertaining”. Meanwhile, the Daily Telegraph assert that, “He’s blessed with the sort of laid-back charm and sharp turn of phrase you can’t manufacture”. Jason has, of course, enjoyed a hugely successful TV career, starring in such hit shows as 8 out of 10 Cats (Channel 4), The Nightly Show (ITV1), Sunday Night at the Palladium (ITV1), Live at the Apollo (BBC One), Have I Got News For You (BBC One), QI (BBC Two), The Royal Variety Performance (ITV1), and Bigheads (ITV1).
