The North of England has always enjoyed its own particular brand of comedy and eighty years ago the Mancunian Film Studios was producing some of the most popular films of the day. Funny Up North – The History of Northern Comedy tells the story of the Mancunian Film Studio and its eccentric owner, John E. Blakely, along with its cavalcade of stars that became household names all over the country such as Arthur Askey, George Formby, Jimmy Jewel, and the legendary Frank Randle. Hosted by Professor Chris Lee, the authority on Northern Cinema, Funny Up North takes you on a journey from Mancunian Film Studio’s humble beginnings to its enviable record of every film turning in a profit. It’s a reet good story!
