Stand-up comedian Jason Mandford has assured fans that he will “see them right” as a venue in Brentwood, where he was due to perform, is forced to close. According to the 39-year-old’s most recent social media post, it is the second venue on his Like Me tour, which was set to kick off last month, that has shut down.

Taking to both Instagram and Twitter, Jason shared a post in which he vowed to “personally” make sure ticket holders would either see the gig they paid for or receive a refund.

“A notice to people who have tickets to my ‘Like Me’ tour dates at venues which are being forced to shut due to the pandemic,” he captioned his online statement.

“I hear another venue where I was due to perform has closed, Brentwood, and people are having trouble getting refunds etc,” the TV star added, in view of his 358,800 Twitter followers.

Yesterday, the Brentwood Centre, where Jason was due to perform in May 2021, announced it would close with immediate effect, leaving ticket holders scrambling for a refund.

Earlier in the year, his Southport Theatre gig was cancelled as the venue temporarily closed when the previous owners went into liquidation in May.

Jason’s post continued: “Please be assured that if anyone has a ticket for one of my shows and that venue closes due to everything going on (atm just Southport & now Brentwood) then please be assured that if a refund isn’t possible I will personally make sure you get a ticket for another show even if it means putting one on in that town for free.”

“Hold out till after new year so we can see the lay of the land.

“I’ll see you right,” he vowed.
