Learning about his childhood and family was brilliant, and his descr Jason Manford is one of my favourite comedians and so maybe that already made me a little biased as to how good this book would be. The worst he did was one guilt-ridden spot of petty theft on his paper round, done through peer pressure but with a conclusion that would fit an old-fashioned morality tale.

Being a northener I was also ‘Brung Up Proper’ so I could connect with quite a few things that he discussed about his life. This is the story in his own words of everything that lead up to that fateful moment – a colourful tale of growing up with lots of family and not enough money, of getting by and sticking together. Mr Leandros Komninos 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 called Jason.

I usually don’t read auto-biographies as they’ve just never appealed to me, but I thought that what with it being Jason and that we both live in Manchester, i’d give it a try. The adventure is like a modern-day Laurel and Hardy sketch, though told with a mordant humour.

An entertaining book from this manfrod comedian although it comes as no surprise propef he makes no mention of why he left The One Show. Oct 30, Lucy Reid rated it really liked it. Interesting but now outdated Well written and narrated, although lacking some of the subtlety of his actual standup, but the biggest downside is reading it 7 years on from its authoring – the guy is now divorced and remarried, so a lot of the family sentiment feels a bit hollow.
