POPULAR Northern comedian Jason Manford has announced a brand new tour for 2013 - including two dates at the Royal Concert Hall.

His ‘First World Problems Tour’ comes to the Royal Concert Hall on Thursday 21st and Friday 22nd November at 8pm

Tickets at £25 are available from or contact 0115 989 5555.

The show promises to feature a wealth of comedy anecdotes, misunderstandings and audience banter delivered with Jason’s likeable charm and teasingly intelligent wit.

Jason has had a busy time since he was last on the road. After his opera singing turn saw him emerge the winner on Born To Shine (ITV1)

He put his new found talent into practise, joining Alfie Boe on tour prior to a well-received run in the critically acclaimed hit west-end musical ‘Sweeney Todd’, alongside Michael Ball and Imelda Staunton.

However, his comedy bones weren’t completely idle as he enjoyed appearances on QI (BBC Two), Big Fat Quiz of the Year (Channel 4), and Comedy World Cup (Channel 4).

Dates at Sheffield and Chesterfield are also planned.
