SALFORD comedian Jason Manford has announced a massive 99 date UK and Ireland tour, kicking off in Basingstoke on February 3, 2021 and culminating with a huge homecoming show at the Manchester Arena on October 23, 2021.

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 38-year-old, who studied at the University of Salford, recently appeared on ITV's The Masked Singer with his recent work spanning comedy, acting, singing and presenting including a host of TV credits on the likes of First & Last (BBC One), What Would Your Kid Do? (ITV1), Olivier Awards (ITV1), Scarborough (BBC One), 8 Out of 10 Cats (Channel 4), The Nightly Show (ITV1), Sunday Night at the Palladium (ITV1), Live at the Apollo (BBC One), Have I Got News For You (BBC One), QI (BBC Two) and The Royal Variety Performance (ITV1).

Tickets go on sale Friday, February 28 at 10am with a pre-sale at 10am on Wednesday, February 26 at 10am.
