A hilarious yet warm memoir of growing up funny in a big working class Manchester family
Jason was born in 1981 in Salford into an Irish-Catholic family. He began his career collecting glasses at the Buzz Comedy Club upstairs at the Southern Hotel in Chorlton, Manchester. Just six gigs into his career, following in the footsteps of Caroline Aherne and Peter Kay, he was crowned the City Life North West Comedian of the Year. After picking up a number of other awards, Jason was nominated for the Perrier in Edinburgh. He currently lives in Stockport with his wife, three young children and Man City season ticket.
"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 *
