2013: A Funny Old Year

2013: A Funny Old Year
Radio Times

It’s three years since Jason Manford resigned unceremoniously from The One Show, after alleged personal indiscretions made the headlines. Although the BBC has yet to welcome the Mancunian funnyman back into the fold, the whiff of scandal didn’t dent his popularity for long: back in June he embarked on a 12-month, 200-date national tour.

Here he takes a night off to poke fun at the gaffes and fads of 2013. Judging by his current show, the gags will be slick but gentle – unlikely to offend the sensibilities of even the prissiest great-aunt.

About this programme

A humorous celebration of the highs and lows of the past 12 months, from the royal baby to the horsemeat scandal, Andy Murray's Wimbledon victory to David Beckham's retirement. Comedian Jason Manford gives his personal take on everything from TV to sport, as well as the gaffes, feuds and trends of the year.
