TICKETS have gone on sale for a comedy tour promoted by stand-up comedian Jason Manford.

The former One Show presenter, and his fellow comedian brother Colin, recently launched Manford’s Comedy Clubs, which is aimed at offering comedy fans a cheaper night out at local clubs.

And although Jason won’t be performing himself, he has spoken of his excitement at announcing two dates at the Civic Arts Centre, in Union Road, Oswaldtwistle.

The 32-year-old Mancunian said on his website: “We were contacted by the lovely staff at the Civic Centre about running a gig here, and as soon as me and Colin met the enthusiastic team we were sold.

“There’s so much on a the Civic Centre and hopefully with our involvement, everyone can start enjoying this well-run local landmark.”

The gigs proved so popular, they had to be moved to the larger theatre, which is upstairs at the centre. Shows will be held on April 13 and May 11.
