COMEDIAN Jason Manford reflects on growing up working class, but then finding that, as he has grown older, part of him has become middle class, causing him much confusion in his new touring show Muddle Class.

"Somebody said to me on my Facebook fan page, 'it's been ages since you've toured'. I thought 'no way, it was last year wasn't it?'." says 36-year-old Manford. "Anyway, long story short, they were right, it was years ago. I just got fooled 'cos I've been on tour doing musicals and the last tour is repeated on Dave Ja Vu 13 times a day.

"So I’ve been putting some stuff together, looking at my life and how it's changed over the years, how the world has changed and how my parents haven't changed a bit."

Muddle Class follows Manford's 2013/14 show First World Problems, a tour that ran for 18 months, taking him to all corners of the British Isles to perform more than 200 sold-out shows.

Since then, the Salford comic, actor and presenter has starred as Leo Bloom in the national tour of Mel Brooks's The Producers; played Caractacus Potts on tour in Chitty Chitty Bang Bang; presented a Sunday morning radio show on Absolute; hosted the Sunday night television game show Bigheads, the Olivier Awards on ITV1 and The Nightly Show on ITV1 and guest-starred on ITV1's Benidorm.

Manford also runs Manford’s Comedy Club with his brother Colin, showcasing both established names and the stars of tomorrow to audiences across the country.

Last September, he presented two Work In Progress shows of comedy anecdotes and misunderstandings at Pocklington Arts Centre as he limbered up for the fully-fledged version of Muddle Class. The 2018 tour also takes in Bridlington Spa tomorrow at 7.30pm. Box office: York, 0844 854 2757 or at; Bridlington, 01262 678258 or at
