After taking an 18 month break from comedy to write his autobiography, John is ready and raring to get back to where he feels he belongs – on stage, making people laugh.

John said: “Stand-up is the reason my career is what it is today and I’ve had time to reflect on that this past year. I love the immediacy of stand-up and I feel a real closeness to my audience whilst on stage. I love nothing more than giving them a laugh and I can’t wait to get back out on the road. My family also can’t wait, as I am driving them all mad at home now that I’ve written my book.”

Do not miss this chance to see one of the country’s finest comedians in fantastic full flow this autumn.

Not content with just writing his autobiography, John has squeezed plenty in over the last few years. In 2012, John performed to 500,000 people in his sell-out ROLLERCOASTER tour. With its massive helter skelter set and surprise finale, the DVD of the show went on to top the charts. This time he is pouring even more rocket fuel into the tank in an attempt to exceed those excitements. This time he is guaranteed to take you to even higher heights!

John ended 2013 with a Royal engagement with Her Majesty, when he hosted the prestigious Royal Variety Show before Christmas. He also hosted his own TV Christmas Special on BBC One. Before this, John starred in John Bishop’s Britain (BBC One) and John Bishop’s Only Joking (Sky 1). He cycled, rowed and ran from Paris to London in his one-off special for Sport Relief John Bishop’s Week of Hell (BBC One), and has been a regular on Sky 1’s A League of their Own in addition to hosting Live at the Apollo.

2014 saw John return to BBC One with his debut international travelogue, in a three part series entitled John Bishop’s Australia which was broadcast in July. The series saw John retrace the route of a mammoth bike journey he first made as a 25-year-old back in 1992. Using his original diary as a tour guide, he cycled from Sydney up the East Coast of Australia towards far Northern Queensland and encountered an extraordinary range of vivid characters; heard their fascinating stories and experienced the true natural wonders Australia has to offer.

Adding another string to his bow, John has also worked as an actor under the direction of Ken Loach in ‘Route Irish’ and the critically acclaimed Jimmy McGovern’s series 'Accused’.

The paperback version of John’s autobiography ‘How Did All This Happen’ is out now.
