@estherfunnyoldgoat Lebenase Essex Comedian. In her own words, This is a title I did not think I would have as I completely fell into comedy by accident. I was on maternity leave with my second baby and found that I had become a blob of matter…… I had lost all banter-ability. Yup, so I went to Camden Comedy School and thought that would get me out the house and give me back some brain power…I never intended to be a comic. In fact, after standing in front of the group during the second week of the course I went outside and threw up. 4 years later and I have done more than I ever imagined!

“Ms Manito is a confident comic with a likeability factor which can do her no harm. Her stage presence and delivery enhance her well written material and it is easy to see why she is doing so well, both nationally and internationally,” One4Review
“Manito is an engaging and promising comic who will staunchly stand up for what she believes, and that alone makes her an interesting proposition.” – Chortle
