Gary rated it really liked it Jan 04, Really enjoyable, Brought back lots of memories for me, as we are a similar age and from a similar background, some great laugh out loud moments and some heartbreakingly sad ones too, but that’s what life is for most of us really, isn’t it?!
Funny read, not as enthralling as I thought it would be, but nice to have the background story on a comic I enjoy following.
Emily rated it really liked it Aug 05, Bruhg but now outdated Well written and narrated, although lacking some of the subtlety of his actual standup, but the biggest downside is reading it 7 years on manfird its authoring – the guy is now divorced and remarried, so a lot of the family sentiment feels a bit hollow. Refresh and try again. Jason Manford is firmly established as one of the country’s favourite stand-ups and is up there with the best northern comedy legends.
Jason didn’t have a privileged upbringing if you look at it from a materialistic point of view, but what he did have was a large, loving, and supportive family. His sense of humor came across brilliantly in his writting, I found myself laughing alot while brnug it. It is a story of his shameless extended clan of wayward uncles and singing nans and a gobby little knobhead at the heart of it all jasom Jason.
Seeing it week in, week out, he analysed how the comics worked, and would chat to them after every show.
Yes because Jason Manford brings the story to life. As an aside, if your reading this love, I have tickets booked for January so don’t die or anything okay? Manford comes over in his writing like he does on TV panel shows and in stand-up.
