A COMEDIAN says he will be flexing “the old chuckle muscle” when he returns to the stage next year.

Jason Manford said he has had “a busy few years” since his last stand-up show, but promised to return with more of the same when he plays at the Brighton Centre on October 2, 2021.

Jason said: “After the fun we had on my last tour Muddle Class, I’m excited to get back on the road with my new stand up show, Like Me.”

"In these trying times it’s always important to be able to get away for a couple of hours and exercise the old chuckle muscle.”
