Top UK comic performs to ring in 18 years of The Laughter Factory
Time Out Dubai staff
Manc comedian Jason Manford put on an assured and lengthy set layered with laughs. Peppering rehearsed observations of family life and the UK today with off-the-cuff Dubaisms, the highlight came after the break, when the former 8 Out of 10 Cats star read out the audiences own ‘first world problems’. Alongside having to fill up your own car with petrol after midnight (#onlyindubai), the top draw had to be the chap dressed in the same Ted Baker shirt as the comic, who got up onstage like a good sport.
A fantastic gig by a top draw name firing on all cylinders – and a timely way for The Laughter Factory to celebrate 18 years in Dubai. There’s still tickets for tonight, we’re told – get ’em quick here.
