Jason Manford

by admin on March 20, 2009

It is always good to have a local preforming in particular the famed comedian Jason Manford, who was born locally in Salford. Jason started out in a comedy club not as a performer but as a glass collector, fortunately form him and us, when one of the guests didn’t arrive Jason stepped up even only being 17 at the time. Six gigs later he was crowned The City Life North West Comedian of the Year.

He is probably best known locally on Xfm Manchester and as the team captain in 8 out of 10 Cats.

With Billy Connolly Tommy Cooper & Les Dawson have influenced his comic style, also interestingly he can be heard as the voice over on the Churchill Insurance adverts.

Jason will be at the Manchester Apollo on Wed 23rd & Thurs 24th September 2009 – 8pm and tickets are available from here.

So for a taster of a little bit of northern fun, his video is below
