The line-up has been revealed for Chorley Little Theatre’s very first Manford Comedy Club, with acts picked by TV comedian Jason and his team.

The new concept will become a regular event in which Jason selects some of his favourite circuit comedians and sends them to a number of small venues across the country.

Jason won’t appear himself, but has a cracking line-up for Chorley featuring Tom Stade, MC Phil Ellis, Penella Mellor and Steve Shanyaski.

Phil is a Fosters Edinburgh Comedy Awards winner; Tom is a riotous story-teller who has appeared on the Little Theatre’s stage before; Penella is a rising star with several awards under her belt; and Steve is an energetic and silly comedian.

They will perform at 8pm on Saturday, September 26.

Tickets are £12.50 from Malcolm’s Musicland in Chapel Street, 01257 264362.

The Manford Comedy Club will return to the Dole Lane theatre on Saturday, October 31, with a line-up which so far will include Jason Cook and Ray Peacock among others.
