Reviews

"He's blessed with the sort of laid back charm and sharp turn of phrase you can't manufacture" * Daily Telegraph * "Manford paints a warm picture of a chaotic poor-but-happy childhood filled with earthy characters, from an eccentric uncle to a big-hearted tart he met on his paper round" * Evening Standard * "One of the most consistently funny and effortlessly charming new comics around" -- Jonathan Ross "Several instances are much less commonplace, no matter how matter-of-factly Manford relates them - such as the heroin addict uncle who used to crash on the family sofa. And there surely can't be many people who have a story about liberating a cooker from a murder victim's house ... The adventure is like a modern-day Laurel and Hardy sketch, though told with a mordant humour" * Chortle * "Who wouldn't feel a rush of delight to see the stand-up and perennial panel show host Jason Manford peeking out of their Christmas stocking?" * Independent on Sunday *
