A message from Jason Manford

What a rollercoaster of a ride it’s been here at Manford’s Comedy Clubs where in the last five years we’ve employed hundreds of comedians to entertain over 80,000 people in over 70 different locations around the country! From holiday parks to art centres and from bustling city centre nightclubs to quiet out of town theatres, we’ve certainly brought a lot of laughs to a lot of people!

I started out with a simple philosophy; build it (make it really funny) and they will come!

With our monthly sell out shows in great venues around the country, we have put some of the best comedians from the UK comedy circuit in front of some of the best crowds. Our audiences have such a wonderful reputation within the business that we even on occasion get special guests dropping in, John Bishop, Sarah Millican, Russell Kane and even Michael McIntyre have all played a Manford’s gig and I’m sure will again in the future!

So thank you for making our first few years a success, it’s fair to say that it’d be pretty rubbish without you.

I know how easy it is to do nothing, how easy it would be to sit and watch your favourite comedians on YouTube or Dave Ja Vu, but I know, and I think you know too, that there is simply, nothing like live. The thrill of being there is something that nothing can replicate, the excitement of watching a performer with your mates, colleagues or loved ones knowing that absolutely anything could happen and witnessing the magic that only happens there in that very moment; it’s why stand up comedy remains one of the best nights out you’ll ever have.

So check our venues page to see if there’s a club near you and experience a night of unforgettable laughing for yourself, and if there’s not a venue near you then feel free to let us know, if enough people do, we’ll have a look!

Please subscribe to our page so we can let you know of any ticket offers or any special guests that may be appearing!

Here’s to another year of laughs!

Lots of love,

Jason Manford
