Manford's Comedy Club


The Lichfield Garrick Theatre is delighted to be the latest location of Manford's Comedy Club! The best new comedians from the UK comedy circuit will be bringing laughs to the people of Lichfield, check out the line-up below:

MC: Matt Reed

Born and bred in Sunderland, insanely funny and charming, as pleasant as he is wonderfully brutal, Matt Reed is one of the funniest, quick-witted comics and MCs on the UK circuit and can keep you on the edge of your seat with the ability to skillfully destroy any heckler that has the misfortune to cross his path!

OPENER: Lily Philips

Lily is one of the most exciting up and coming voices in comedy in the UK. She was a Runner Up at the 2019 Leicester Square New Comedian of the Year, Funny Women Finalist 2018, and was a part of prestigious Pleasance Comedy Reserve at the 2019 Edinburgh Fringe Festival. In 2021, she reached the grand final of the BBC New Comedy Awards on BBC One.

MIDDLE: John Jo Taylor

With a consistently absurd take on everything, John delivers well crafted original jokes with a cynical dry wit.
He was a semi-finalist in So You Think You’re Funny? new act competition at the Edinburgh Fringe and has worked in Australia, New Zealand and China.
