THE BASTARD GHOST OF BERNARD MANNING: CLASS STEREOTYPES AND NORTHERN COMEDIANS with KATE FOX

Sunday, 18 February 2018
Time: 12:30pm (2:00pm)Doors open: 12:10pm
Entry: FREE
Genre: Discussion

Following Kate's PhD research she found that stereotypes haunt Northern comics and are a way for some to reinforce damaging prejudices. The men are all Bernard Manning, the women are all Victoria Wood. Some acts suffer from this whilst some resist it and some reinforce them. At a time when the Northern Powerhouse is being constructed could grinning up North help resist persistent ideas that it's Grim Up North? Part of the Beyond A Joke series.
