There are still a few tickets available to see comedian Jason Manford on Saturday (July 19) at the Meres Leisure Centre.

The popular TV comedian is coming to Grantham as part of his ‘First World Problems’ tour.

Manford has become a familiar face on TV in recent years and a popular stand-up in UK theatres. He is back on tour with a wealth of comedy anecdotes, comic misunderstandings and audience banter delivered with his trademark likeable Northern charm and teasingly intelligent wit.

Manford, 32, who was born in Salford, said: “Some of you might think I’ve had a career change what with all the opera and musical theatre I’ve been doing lately. Not a chance, I’m excited to be getting back to what I really love the most – stand up!”

Stand-up sets on ‘Live at the Apollo’, ‘Michael McIntyre’s Comedy Roadshow’ and ‘The Royal Variety Performance’ have all helped establish Manford. He has hosted ITV’s reality comedy competition, Show Me the Funny and a second series of his own creation, ‘Walk on the Wild Side’, aired on BBC1 in 2010. He has hosted ‘Comedy Rocks with Jason Manford’ and been a regular panelist on two series of ‘Odd One In’.

Tickets cost £22.50 with a £1 booking fee per ticket. Call into the box office at the Guildhall Arts Centre, St Peter’s Hill, call 01476 406158 or visit www.guildhallartscentre.com
