Cheeky Northern bloke all-in-this-together comedy isn't everyone's cup of (Lancashire) tea but Jason Manford has built up quite a large following in recent years. A TV panel show regular, Manford is also a talented opera singer who has toured with Alfie Boe and performed in musicals on the West End. His last visit to the Apollo was somewhat soured, however: it was married Manford's first major appearance since quitting as co-host of The One Show, amid tabloid revelations of text and Twitter flirting with female fans (his wife was pregnant at the time of his virtual dalliances). Heckled mercilessly, Manford managed to hold his own - and returns to the scene of his grilling with a new show for 2013. "He's blessed with the sort of laid-back charm and sharp turn of phrase you can't manufacture," says The Telegraph. His Twitter followers may beg to differ.
Once London's largest all-seater venue, the Hammersmith Apollo has a 3,600 capacity for seated shows and a 5,000 capacity for standing-room-only gigs. It was renovated in 2002, and now works well as a venue for theatre (hosting a huge variety of shows from Riverdance to Thomas the Tank Engine) as well as rock concerts. More about Hammersmith Apollo
