Jason Manford announces UK tour of new show Muddle Class

Former host of The One Show and 8 Out of 10 Cats team captain gears up for his latest standup tour

Funnyman Jason Manford has announced a series of UK tour dates for 2018.

The stand-up – who formerly presented BBC's The One Show and was a team captain on hit Channel 4 panel show 8 Out of 10 Cats – has been keeping busy starring in Chitty Chitty Bang Bang, hosting an Absolute Radio show and fronting ITV's The Nightly Show.

He's missed the buzz of live comedy though, and Muddle Class takes Manford – known for his charming and witty performances – on the road once again, with the tour kicking off at Leeds' Town Hall on Wed 24 Jan, and finishing on Sat 26 May at Liverpool Philharmonic.

Manford, who first found himself trying out live comedy as a 17-year-old glass collector in a Manchester pub, 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.'

If you can't wait until 2018 the comic is touring a work-in-progress show from September 2017.

Presale for Muddle Class available from Wed 19 Apr. Tickets on general sale at 9am on Wed 26 Apr.
