Tickets are on sale now for the special launch of a brand-new night of stand-up comedy in Chorley, curated by Jason Manford and his team.
Manford’s Comedy Club will be 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, including Chorley Little Theatre, for a great night of comedy.
“I’m going to carefully select some of my favourite comedians from the circuit and send them to a town near you, in a pub or small theatre near to your house, for a reasonable, affordable price”Comedian Jason Manford
Jason takes to his website to explain the concept: “I’ve been wondering for while now, why is local stand-up comedy not high up on the list of what people think about doing when looking for a great night out?
“It’s my theory that if you’ve seen a comedian on the telly and liked them, you’ll buy tickets because you know you’re in for a guaranteed night of laughter. It’s money well spent – but it’s not a weekly occurrence.
“When it comes to your local, affordable comedy club, the simple but all-important question is: ‘But how do I know they will be funny?’
“Well let me tell you this: there is a circuit of brilliant comics in this country who haven’t been on telly for a number of reasons.
“So I’m going to carefully select some of my favourite comedians from the circuit and send them to a town near you, in a pub or small theatre near to your house, for a reasonable, affordable price so you can share the evening laughing out loud with friends and family and still have enough for a taxi home.”
Chorley’s line-up for Saturday, September 26 (at 8pm) is yet to be announced, but tickets are on sale now.
They cost £12.50 from calling 01257 264362.
