Publisher's Summary

Jason Manford is firmly established as one of the country's favourite stand-ups and is up there with the best northern comedy legends. His career began one night in a pub in Chorlton when a comedian didn't arrive for his set and Jason, the 17-year-old glass collector stepped in to fill the gap. From that point on he's never looked back, until now that is....

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. 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. Featuring rock-hard great granddads, doting grandparents, pub-crooning nanas, football-mad dads, pet-obsessed mums, more dodgy uncles than you can shake a stick at, failed exams, dead-end jobs, paper rounds, prostitutes, shocked priests, manslaughter, winning goals, sudden losses, replica shirts, chip-fat incidents, scary pubs, pet meat, fighting Gandhis, cancelled Christmases, Sir Oswald Mosley, flooded tents, call centres, circumcision, puppy love, friends for life, difficult girlfriends, gigs from hell, heart break and, finally, true love....

With his laugh-out-loud tales of coming of age, Jason shows he's a generous storyteller and as natural an observer as he is on stage.

    "Enjoyable Listen!"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Brung Up Proper to be better than the print version?

    Yes because Jason Manford brings the story to life.


    What other book might you compare Brung Up Proper to, and why?

    This is the first audible book i've listened to.


    What about Jason Manford’s performance did you like?

    Very good and engaging throughout.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    The touching part about his relationship with his first serious girlfriend was moving.


    Any additional comments?

    As a first book (and training for a marathon) this book kept me entertained and interested. It felt like i had a running partner telling me his life story.....a good listen!

    "Like sitting in a pub with him."

    Really enjoyable listen. Being read by the author it was like sitting in a pub with him telling you about his life. Being from Manchester myself it was funny hearing Jason talk about places I knew so well. I loved his stories about his family, reminded me as a lot of Salford families I know! I enjoyed his honesty about his experiences and emotions. It would have been very easy to miss out the harder parts of his life but he didn't. It made him who he is and as he said... He was brung up proper.

    Story
    "Jason at his best"

    This was a poignant and wonderful story of Jason's upbringing. A loving and poor family who worked hard to bring up their family. His fathers sense of humour and those of some of his uncles highlights where Jason's sense of humour comes from, but more importantly he is a wonderful story teller and the book itself in many ways is a performance. Fabulous bits with the big fat bald bastard and mums gay friend had me crying with laughter. I have read this 4 times now Thank you for entertaining me x

    Story
    "Nostalgia but sudden ending"

    The story is great, all about his childhood, but much like John bishops it seems to just stop as you get into the juicy bits of his current life. I imagine so he can release another book. It's a good read though and worth getting
