Jason Manford's new show 'Like Me' live on stage at the Bath Forum

Posted on: 13 Dec 2020

Jason Manford is coming to the Bath Forum on Wednesday 26 January 2022. It's sure to be ‘expert observational comedy’ (The Guardian) mixed with ‘comic gold’ (Mail on Sunday).


Jason said: “After the fun we had on my last tour ‘Muddle Class’, I’m excited to get back on the road with my new stand up show, ‘Like Me’. In these trying times it’s always important to be able to get away for a couple of hours and exercise the old chuckle muscle! So I’m coming to a venue near you in 2021 so we can have a good laugh together. See you then.”


The comedian began his career in 1999, while working at the Buzz Comedy Club upstairs at the Southern Hotel in Chorlton, Manchester.


Jason was collecting glasses when a performer didn’t arrive for an evening set, Jason, who was 17 at the time stepped in to fill the gap, an event which marked the beginning of his comedy career. Six gigs later he was crowned The City Life North West Comedian of the Year.



After winning several smaller awards, Jason was nominated for the Perrier Award in Edinburgh in 2005 for his show Urban Legends, a stand up show about those stories that always seem to happen to a friend of a friend. Jason did the comedy clubs of the UK, including the Comedy Store and Jongleurs.

His first major television appearance was when he was a guest on the Channel 4 panel show, 8 out of 10 cats, presented by Jimmy Carr, he was on Dave Spikey’s team alongside Piers Morgan, and would later go on to replace Dave Spikey as Team Captain in 2007 and continued in the role until 2011.


Since then, Jason has presented Sky Three’s Premier League Allstars Extra Time, Channel 4’s Tonightly, performed at the Royal Variety Performance, on Channel 4’s Comedy Gala, ITV1’s The Comedy Annual 2010, BBC1’s Would I Lie to You, become a regular on ITV1’s Odd One In with Peter Andre and given his voice to BBC1’s highly acclaimed Walk on the Wild Side.
