News:  Russell Howard, Dane Baptiste, Kiri Pritchard-McLean, Danny Posthill, Barbara Nice Join Jason Manford's Stand-Up Club

After a 20-year comedy career, Jason Manford is a pretty good judge when it comes to the mood of the nation and what is needed to make us chuckle and smile in these strange times.  So Jason has created a new weekly comedy night - which he will also host - featuring performances from an array of top comedians, which can be enjoyed from the comfort of your own living room. Jason Manford Presents: The Weekly Stand Up is available to watch every Thursday at 8pm until 13 August.

Following five very successful shows the line-up for show six, which takes place on Thursday 30 July has now been announced.  Award winning stand-up Russell Howard will be popping in for a chat, and comedian's Dane Baptiste, Kiri Pritchard-McLean, Danny Posthill and Barbara Nice will all perform.

The first four shows of The Weekly Stand Up have had stellar line-ups, with appearances from John Bishop, Rob Brydon, Harry Hill, Chris & Rosie Ramsey, Milton Jones, Alfie Boe, Sara Pascoe, Abandoman, Justin Moorhouse, Jo Caulfield, Tez Ilyas, Noise Next Door, Dana Alexander, Sindhi Vee, Stuart Goldsmith, Amy Silverberg, Juliet Meyers, Nathan Caton, Derba Digiovanni, Jenna Friedman, Allyson June Smith and Emmanuel Sonubi. 

The Weekly Stand Up is a live ticketed streamed event from comedians homes, into your homes. Featuring the very best comedians from the UK circuit, and around the world, we are going to be bringing laughter, home. Further comedians for the following weeks will be announced soon. 

Jason Manford said: “I’ve always been conscious of how precarious my industry can be. I set up Manford’s Comedy Clubs five years ago to support other comedians and now I’m here, trying to do what I can to help again. I’ve set up the gigs to support my friends and colleagues during this awful time, whilst none of us would claim to be ‘key workers’, we know that a lot of frontline staff and key workers could do with having their minds taken off the difficulty of what’s going on out there and as always, everybody could do with a good laugh. I hope these shows will go some way to bridging the gap between now and when we are allowed back in our venues once more”. 

The gigs will be streamed live to a password protected website theweeklystandup.co.uk where people can watch the show live, or at any time up to 24 hours afterwards.

A weekly donation will be made to various performers charities every week.
