Due to phenomenal demand, award-winning stand up comedian Jason Manford will perform his first ever live Arena tour across the UK in October and November 2011, coming to the Motorpoint Arena, Sheffield on Wednesday 19th October.

Currently performing his smash-hit new show ‘Off On Tour We Go’ to sell-out crowds around the country, Jason is set to entertain around half a million fans during 2010-2011. Audiences are guaranteed to be kept laughing all evening with hilarious tales of shower mishaps, visiting “dangerous” animals and nappies.

Jason said “If someone had told me ten years ago when I was telling jokes down at my local that I’d be doing Arenas by the time I was 30, I’d have said they should give comedy a go! It’s a really exciting opportunity and I am going to give it my best shot.”

Renowned for his hilarious observations and loveable, friendly delivery Jason has been a firm favourite with comedy fans of all ages since his first solo stand-up show earned him huge critical acclaim and a nomination for the prestigious Perrier Newcomer Award back in 2005.

Known for his stand up through TV appearances including ‘Live at the Apollo’ (BBC One), ‘Michael McIntyre’s Comedy Roadshow’ (BBC One) and ‘The Royal Variety Performance’ (ITV1, 2009). Jason also continues to entertain as team captain on ‘8 out of 10 Cats’ (Channel 4), hosted a pilot of ‘Comedy Rocks’ (ITV1) in March this year, and a second series of his hilarious creation ‘Walk on the Wild Side’ (BBC One) airs this autumn.

This show suitable for all those 16 and over.
