Johnny Mans has been an established theatrical producer/promoter and showbusiness Johnny Mannsagent/manager since the early 1980's.

His career first started as a comedy entertainer and stand-up comedian presenting his act in holiday camps, clubs, cabaret, theatres, television, radio and cruise liners. This background gave him the knowledge of theatrical production and with his natural flair for business and marketing, enabled him to join legendary agent Billy Marsh as Managing Director of Billy's Promotions company, which Johnny eventually took over when Billy died and the organisation was then name-changed through Companies House to the current Johnny Mans Productions.

"Billy was a Mentor to me," says Johnny "had been a personal friend for many, many years and had frequently asked me to join him in business."

At the time of the company name change, Johnny then decided to move the business to the market town of Hoddesdon in Hertfordshire so he could be nearer his family. Johnny is married to Becky who works in Property and they have two grown up offspring, son Elliot and daughter Lucy. "I'm very proud of my two." Says Johnny. "Elliot is a Bachelor Of Science with First Class Honours and works in Aviation, and Lucy is a Bachelor Of Arts with Honours and has been working in Television."

Now one of the leaders in producing and presenting concert tours, Johnny also represents many artistes from the world of Light Entertainment, Drama and Television. He comments "We hire thousands of personnel throughout the year including comedians, singers, musicians, choreographers, company managers, coach drivers, truck drivers, sound and lighting engineers, publicists, piano tuners, designers, printers, the list is endless. There are theatres to book, equipment to hire, hotels to secure, transportation to organise, costumes to make, publicity to design and almost everything that is needed to ensure we are at the top level of this high profile business."

Johnny Mans Productions also have a literary arm, being agents for clients who have had biographies published through leading companies. Norman Wisdom's "Don't Laugh At Me" and "My Turn", both written with William Hall, and Norman's "Cos I'm A Fool" and Max Bygraves' "In His Own Words" written with Bernard Bale are some of the books negotiated through this office. "We also went into publishing ourselves for a little while" says Johnny " which resulted in two books entitled '25 Years Of Olympia Showjumping' and a reference soccer book by ex-Liverpool star Ian St. John on how to teach your offspring the rules of football.

If it's entertainment you're after, be it theatre, corporate, television or just something for your friend's wedding or party 'knees up', then contact the office at your earliest convenience and we will endeavour to tailor your requirement to suit your needs and your budget.
