Jason Manford: Live Tour 2014 – First World Problems is out now on DVD through Universal Pictures (UK).
In May 2013, comedy hero Jason Manford embarked on his third UK tour, ‘First World Problems’. Manford’s live show encourages audience participation by inviting them to share their ‘First World Problems’ which leads to hilarious exchanges.
Following the huge success of the UK Tour, ‘First World Problems’ is out now on DVD. Jason’s warm humour and natural rapport demonstrates his likeability and his popularity and he can’t wait for his fans to see the DVD.
Jason said: “I’ve absolutely loved this show; I’ve had a great time with the audiences all over the country, they’ve made the show for me. We had some great banter and I loved seeing so many faces in the audience. The DVD really captures the excitement of being at the live show and it’ll make a cracking Christmas present!”
By the time ‘First World Problems’ finishes its 18 month run in December this year, Jason will have performed more than 250 dates to over 300,000 fans across the UK.
Universal will also be releasing ‘Jason Manford Live Collection’ on 17th November which will include three DVDs: ‘First World Problems’, ‘Live at the Manchester Arena’ and ‘Live at the Manchester Apollo’.
Jason’s likeable charm and teasing, intelligent wit has won him an army of fans since he shot to stardom on TV as team Captain on Channel 4’s 8 Out of 10 Cats in 2007.
Stand up sets on ‘Live at the Apollo’ (BBC One), ‘Michael McIntyre’s Comedy Roadshow’ (BBC One) and ‘The Royal Variety Performance’ (ITV1, 2009) have all helped establish Jason as a nationally known comic, a position which made him the ideal host of ITV’s reality comedy competition, Show Me the Funny.
A second series of his hilarious creation ‘Walk on the Wild Side’ (BBC One) aired in 2010. Jason has also hosted ‘Comedy Rocks with Jason Manford’ (ITV1), he was a regular panelist on two series of ‘Odd One In’ (ITV1).
After his opera singing turn saw him emerge the winner on Born To Shine (ITV1) Jason put his new found talent into practice joining Alfie Boe on tour. This was followed by a well-received run in the critically acclaimed hit West End musical Sweeney Todd, starring Michael Ball and Imelda Staunton. He hosted ITV’s ‘Funny Old Year’ on New Year’s Eve 2013, giving his unique and personal take on everything from television to sport, from the gaffes to the feuds and the trends of the year.
In April 2014 Jason appeared alongside Shameless star David Threlfall in ITV1’s drama based on the life of Tommy Cooper, ‘Not Like This, Like That’. Jason hosted a brand new series on BBC One, A Question of Sport: Super Saturday throughout June 2014. In September 2014, the illustrious Sunday Night at the Palladium returned to ITV and saw Jason as one of the guest hosts.
