The is the tale of a cheeky little sod from Salford called Jason growing up surrounded by his properly funny and most definitely shameless family and his discovery that being funny might actually get him somewhere. Other than detention, mugged, dumped or sacked that is.

It's about being part of a big, northern, working-class family forever struggling with money, but never short on laughs or misadventures, who show that when the chips are down what really matters is sticking together.

MEDIA 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 *

“Hilarious and sometimes with feeling”

I'm not a biography fan but as a fan of Jason Manford I had to read it, and I'm glad I did.
This book is full as hilarious anecdotes and sorrowful moments as he describes how he was brought up in Manchester... More
