9 - 5

Based on the seminal 1980 hit movie, a book by Patricia Resnick, music and lyrics by Dolly Parton 9 -5 is a high-energy show. It is set in the late 1970s when three unlikely friends take control of their office and learn there is nothing they can’t do, even in a man’s world. *In a hilarious turn of events, pushed to boiling point, these female co-workers concoct a plan to get even with the sexist, egotistical, lying, hypocritical bigot they call their boss. With its jubilant score this story of friendship and revenge is outrageous, thought-provoking, and even a little romantic. *

Manford's Comedy Club

A message from Jason ManfordHello there, Jason here, thanks for stopping by.Ive been wondering for while now, why is local stand up comedy not high up on the list of what people think about doing when looking for a great night out.So where do we go? The local pub for a few drinks? Cinema? Maybe a meal with a loved one or a cheeky midweek quiz with some mates (where said mates nip to the loo every few minutes for a pretend wee to google who played the lead in Rumpole of the Bailey or something)? Some people still go out clubbing at one of those city centre discotheques! (shudders). Even ten-pin bowling is considered higher up than comedy!How can that be? How can throwing a massive rock at ten wooden things be more fun than sitting in a dark room with your friends or partner, drink in hand, watching someone funny tell jokes that make you all laugh from your belly for hours and hours and give you something to talk about all the next day? That seems crazy to me.Its my theory that if youve seen a comedian on the telly and liked them, youll buy tickets because you know youre in for a guaranteed night of laughter. People certainly came to see me on tour (thank you for that). They go to see John Bishop or Sarah Millican or Micky Flanagan, and they have a bloody good time. Its money well spent but its not a weekly occurrence.When it comes to your local, affordable comedy club, the simple but all-important question is: But how do I know they will be funny?Is it worth paying for a night out when theres a chance you could end up sat in uncomfortable awkward silence as some bloke, whose mates told him he was easily like, the funniest bloke in the office, attempts to regale you with his tales of drunken hilarity?Well let me tell you this: There is a circuit of brilliant comics in this country who havent been on telly for a number of reasons. Maybe theyre up and coming, maybe they were on a late-night stand up show in the 80s and called the host a nobhead, or maybe they just have a severe drinking problem Either way, there are funny people out there who thrive in the live arena and want to make you laugh on a regular basis, so Im going to tell you who they are.My plan is this: Im going to carefully select some of my favourite comedians from the circuit and send them to a town near you. Simple!Im on the lookout for brilliant venues that want to host a Manfords Comedy Club and audiences who want a proper good night. Not in a huge arena where youre sat further away from the comedian than where they parked their car, but in a pub or small theatre near to your house, for a reasonable, affordable price so you can share the evening laughing out loud with friends and family and still have enough for a taxi home.So please support me in this venture and if Ive not yet included a town or venue near you, then feel free to email me and remind me.Keep on laughing folks, and remember, theres nothing like live!Jason ManfordIt was Leo McKern by the way quiz fans!
