Jason Manford: Episode 90


Jason Manford is one of the most fascinating guests ever to appear on the show. His story is a true rags to riches tale - including the heartbreaking account of Christmas being cancelled as a child, Bette Midler's rage over Jason's innocent request, his work addiction, why cursing is holding some comedians back and how Ricky Gervais inadvertently threw a spanner in the works of his first Edinburgh show.


Jason also tells the story of turning around a show from nothing into being a Perrier Award nominee in just four weeks before speaking frankly about the struggle of fatherhood following his divorce and the ramifications of making mistakes as a person in the public eye.
