JASON Manford will be hosting Manford's New Act of the Year at Northwich Memorial Court on June 30.

Jason will be joined by judges to help choose the best comedy act along with an audience vote.

There will also be a guest slot form Northwich favourites The Raymond and Mr Timpkins Review.

Jason said: “One of the best things about having a chain of comedy clubs is that I get to see the names of all the new exciting acts coming through the ranks.

“This competition will enable us to give these new acts a bigger leg up, and I’ll get to see them all perform on the night.”

The winner will receive a £1,000 prize, progression spots with Manford’s comedy clubs, presented with an award trophy and will also be invited to appear as a guest on Jason Manford’s Absolute Radio show.

The runner up will receive a prize of £250 and the chance to progress with Manford’s comedy clubs.
