Jason Manford will be starting a monthly comedy night at Rift & Co.

The comedian posted a Facebook message asking the people of Preston if there was a demand for such an event.

The response was strong and there will now be a monthly night starting on November 28, with a view to making it weekly if they are popular.

Manford said: “After so many people got in touch the other day to support a new night, we have opened up a brand new comedy night in your fine city. We are going to start it off monthly and then if it shows signs of success move it to weekly.

“Our first two are 28th November and 17th December at the Rift & Co right in the city centre.”

The comedian will also be dangling a very tasty carrot for those wishing to compete in the Survive the 5 event at Blitz.

He said: “Secondly, after some research I found a smaller amateur comedians’ night in the city called ‘Survive the Five’ where brand new comedians can get up and see if they have what it takes to get to 5 minutes on stage without getting booted off!

“So to support them and the new comedians they’re helping, we will be offering the weekly winners a paid spot at our Preston club or our Ribby Hall comedy night, where they can test their five minutes on stage alongside 3 professional comedians! Exciting!”
