Stand-up Jason Manford has added a visit to Colchester’s Charter Hall to his 2018 tour.

New show Muddle Class deals with his confusion about growing up working class, then finding as he’s got older part of him has become middle 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? Anyway, long story short, they were right, it was years ago. I just got fooled because I’ve been on tour doing musicals and the last tour is repeated on Dave ja Vu 13 times a day,” he said.

“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. ”

Ticket for the October 12 gig are on sale now. Manford’s also at at the Ipswich Regent on February 15 plus the Lowestoft Marina on February 14 and Southend’s Cliffs Pavilion on March 7.
