NEWS: Jason Manford New 2024/2025 Tour


Jason Manford is back with a new live show for 2024/5 - A Manford All Seasons. Kicking off on 10th November 2024 at Derby Arena, Jason will then play 17 shows at some of the UK’s biggest entertainment venues, culminating at Manchester’s hotly anticipated new multi-million pound Co-Op Arena, being the first comic to go on-sale there. The show visits the Edinburgh Playhouse on 24th November 2024. Tickets go on sale on Friday 13th October at 10.00am from atgtickets.com.

 

Jason’s last stand-up show, Like Me, saw him play an incredible 280 shows across the country, receiving standing ovations and rave reviews night after night. A Manford All Seasons is Jason’s latest comic offering that will feature his iconic ‘expert observational comedy’ (The Guardian) and is sure to be ‘comic gold’ (Mail on Sunday).

 

Jason said: ”People ask me what my favourite job is, acting, presenting, musicals etc. I love them all, but my favourite is still the privilege of doing a stand-up comedy. It’s just me, you, a microphone and a cracking venue. No cameras, no director, no viewing figures and no OFCOM! I can’t wait to see you again and have a good laugh at this mad world, it feels like it's been ages.”

 

Salford-born Jason Manford is one of the UK’s leading multi-talented performers, with a career also spanning acting, presenting, and singing on both stage and screen.

 

Away from comedy, Jason has hosted many shows for the BBC and ITV including Unbeatable, Sunday Night at The Palladium, and The Royal Variety Performance.  Earlier this year, he returned to judge the second series of ITV1's Saturday night show Starstruck and hosted BBC One's primetime show Big Night of Musicals for the second time. Jason also hosts his award-winning three-hour show every Sunday on Absolute Radio.

 

His other TV credits include: First & Last (BBC One), The Masked Singer (ITV1), What Would Your Kid Do? (ITV1), Scarborough (BBC One), 8 Out of 10 Cats (Channel 4), The Nightly Show (ITV1), Live at the Apollo (BBC One), Have I Got News For You (BBC One) and QI (BBC Two).

 

On stage, Jason has starred in numerous musicals in the West End and across the UK, including Sweeney Todd, The Producers, Chitty Chitty Bang Bang, Guys and Dolls, and Curtains. This summer he starred as the Cowardly Lion in The Wizard of Oz at The London Palladium.

Edinburgh Playhouse

With over 3000 seats, the Edinburgh Playhouse is the UK’s largest all-seated theatre. Firmly established in the cultural landscape of Edinburgh and Scotland it plays host to some of the biggest names in live music, stand-up comedy, and musical theatre. It also welcomes many shows as part of the Edinburgh International Festival and the Edinburgh Festival Fringe.


Although designed as a variety theatre, the Playhouse opened in 1929 as Scotland’s second largest cinema. It was hugely successful and remained so until the downturn in cinema attendance in the early 70s. When it closed in November 1973, the building was at risk of demolition, but following several years of public ‘save the Playhouse’ campaigns, it was eventually saved. The building reopened in 1980 as the fully functional theatre it was always intended to be.


In the years since, it has hosted the likes of Elton John, Nick Cave, Bruce Springsteen, Kevin Bridges, Tim Minchin, and international hit musicals such as Wicked, We Will Rock You, Matilda, and Disney’s The Lion King. 


The Edinburgh Playhouse is owned by Ambassador Theatre Group.
