Jason Manford

Jason Manford

Jason has been on the circuit for over five years and a is s regular fixture on Channel 4’s 8 out of 10 Cats. He also co presented the One Show in autumn 2010.

He is based in the North West and despite being a whipper snapper has regularly performed at the country’s top comedy clubs including The Comedy Store and Jongleurs as well abroad. He started his comedy life as a lowly pot collector at Manchester’s longest running comedy club, The Buzz. After an act didn’t turn up one night, Jason offered to step in and went on to do a very promising set in front of a demanding audience.

 

Then after only five weeks and four gigs he won the prestigious North West Comedian of the Year Award, previously won by Caroline Aherne, Johnny Vegas and Peter Kay. 

 Jason has a warm and natural stage presence, and his act is a friendly one. He is naturally funny and has a strong, original set with wry observations and a genuine respect for the old comedy greats. Jason is equally adept at compering, opening or closing shows, and is a regular on the corporate circuit.
