You’ve seen him on Live At The Apollo and 8 Out of 10 Cats, but now you can catch British stand-up comedian Jason Manford live in the flesh.

The TV personality is set to perform a one-off show in Dubai on August 25 at JBR’s Mövenpick Hotel Jumeirah Beach.

The Mancunian will make a space in his current UK tour to bring his new 80-minute set, The Best of Jason Manford, to the UAE.

The comedian last performed in the emirate in 2014 in a two-gig special to celebrate The Laughter Factory’s 18th birthday. 

(We’d do you a solid and insert a clip here to give you a taste of his style for those who aren’t familiar, but sorry, they’re all a bit too blue to embed – hence why it’s an aged 21 and over event).

“I’m absolutely thrilled we’ve been able to bag Jason Manford for a second time – he told me he had such good fun on his last visit he can’t wait to come back,” said Laughter Factory Co-Founder Gail Clough.

“Jason absolutely smashed it in Dubai two years ago – it’s the first time I’ve seen a comedian get two standing ovations in two decades of comedy. If you have a funnybone anywhere inside, you will not want to miss this.”

Manford, a comedy panel regular and radio presenter in his native Britain, has three bestselling DVDs to his name, as well as a host of sell-out stand-up tours and an autobiography.

Regular tickets for his gig will set you back Dhs195, or Dhs295 for the premium experience – visit
