SAVVY Salford 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.

This state of affairs has caused him much confusion, as can be witnessed in his touring show Muddle Class at York Barbican on Friday and Saturday night.

"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," he says.

Since Manford's last tour show, First World Problems, in 2013/14, the Greater Manchester 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.

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. He first brought the finished article to York Barbican in February. To check ticket availability for this week's return, ring 0844 854 2757.
