Comedy Superstar Jason Manford will bring his live tour ‘Muddle Class’ to Gibraltar on 20th June 2019.
The comedian, writer, actor & presenter has more than 250 tour dates across the UK. It’s his first comedy tour since his 2013/14 tour ‘First World problems’ which ran for 18 months to rave reviews. By the time the show comes to the Rock it is expected to have had an audience in the UK of close to half a million people.
Jason Manford said : “Really excited to be making my Gibraltar debut, sea, sand, sunshine, don’t have to learn another language or get my money changed! Can’t wait!”
The show explores Jason’s life growing up in a ‘working class’ family, then finding out that - as he got older - part of him had become ‘middle class’, “causing much confusion”.
Promoters GibMedia say they are pleased to have secured a date for Gibraltar just weeks after their Jimmy Carr shows sold out. GibMedia Director Jordan Lopez said: “There is obviously great appetite for quality comedy in Gibraltar and we are delighted to be able to make it happen.”
Jason Manford shot to stardom in 2007 as team Captain for Channel 4’s ‘8 out of 10 Cats’. Following his UK tours in 2008 and 2009, hosting ‘Live at the Apollo’ (BBC One), ‘Michael McIntyre’s Comedy Roadshow’ (BBC One), multiple appearances on ‘The Royal Variety Performance’ (ITV1) have all helped establish Jason as a nationally known comic, a position which made him the ideal host of ITV’s reality comedy competition, ‘Show Me The Funny’. The second series of ITV1’s well loved show ‘What Would Your Kid Do?’ is back this Easter.
He’s also performed in musicals like Sweeny Todd, The Producers and Chity Chitty Bang Bang and will be back on the road with the critically acclaimed Broadway hit Curtains later this year. In 2014 he hosted ITV1’s ‘Sunday Night at the Palladium’. Jason will also be presenting the prestigious Olivier Awards live from the Royal Albert Hall again this year for Magic FM and ITV1.
Jason Manford ‘Muddle Class’ is on 20th June 2019 at St Michael’s Cave. Tickets are priced at £40 and are available from buytickets.gi (which includes a shuttle service + Booking Fees). They go on sale Thursday 28th March at 12pm.
