Jason Manford’s Muddle Class Tour: Preview
Having grown up on a council estate in Manchester, Manford now lives with his well-heeled kids in sunny Stockport: a stark contrast from his own childhood days. Faced with this interesting generational difference, he explores the highs and lows of growing up among the various neighbourhoods of the North, and that there’s actually more jokes to be made of it than the well-versed quinoa and yoga comments within the classic North-South divide.
From this witty commentary in the light of his recent identity crisis comes most of Manford’s jokes; between the man he’d like to be and the reality that faces him- including his apparent 4ft “Danny DeVito” waistband. From quick anecdotes of classic family escapades, to his self-confessed hypocritical road-rage, Manford examines the all-too-real bluntness of everyday life, somehow finding the blindingly funny aspects of the worst in any situation.
