Jason Manford was born in Salford, Lancashire. He's a writer, comedian, actor, radio and television presenter. He began his career in 1999 at 17 when working at a comedy club and he filled in for a comedian who didn't turn up. Six gigs later he was crowned The City Life North West Comedian of the Year.

Jason supports Man City and has a season ticket with his Dad and three brothers. After winning several smaller awards, Jason was nominated for the Perrier Award in Edinburgh in 2005 for his show 'Urban Legends'.

Jason has done tons of radio but hasn't been on the airwaves since 2008. Speaking about his new Absolute Radio show he said "Nobody in their right mind wants to be up at 8am on a Sunday, so let's get through it by having a bit of a laugh together."
