“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,” he says.

“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.”

Manford, whose work now spans comedy, acting, singing and presenting, also enjoys a host of top TV credits including First & Last and Live at the Apollo for BBC One, The Masked Singer, The Nightly Show and Sunday Night at the Palladium, all for ITV,

His other TV credits include What Would Your Kid Do?, the popular comedy drama Scarborough and Have I Got News For You. His musical theatre credits include The Producers, which last brought him to the Capital.
