I'm watching Jason Manford's "Muddle Class".
A working-class lad from a Manchester council estate, Jason has achieved considerable success in the comedy business and, with it, plenty of dosh in the bank.
Has he become middle-class? No, but his kids (having been brought up with both money and education) are middle-class!
For me, the appeal of Jason Manford is that he is not pushing any political ideology, he's not using his stand-up career as a substitute for much-needed psychotherapy, he doesn't appear to hate any particular group in our society and his act is about as family-friendly as one can reasonably expect in 2020.
The best thing about him is that he's funny.
