COMEDIAN Jason Manford has added a North-East date to his latest tour.

The former 8 Out of 10 Cats captain will take his new show First World Problems to the Gala Theatre, Durham City, on Tuesday, July 8.

Manford said: “I’ve been really enjoying this show; I have fun with the audience, it’s very friendly and relaxed and I never get bored of it – it’s an absolute joy.

“It’s also really interesting to see the demographic of my audience. I get grannies, their kids and their kids. It’s great to see.

“I’d seen the phrase First World Problems online and liked it; it just summed up so much.

“I think the phrase emphasises those times when we moan about the most trivial things. It’s as if we invent problems so we have something to moan about.”

A limited number of tickets are still available, priced £22.50 each. To book, visit the Gala box office, call 03000-266-600 or go online to galadurham.co.uk
