John Bishop Adds New Tour Dates

John Bishop Goes Back On Tour

Comedy superstar John Bishop is adding extra dates to his ‘Back At It’ UK and Ireland stand-up tour following phenomenal demand for tickets.

The extra shows, bringing the touring schedule to a huge 86 dates – including a number of shows that will be signed by a BSL interpreter - will also see John extend the tour into 2025.  Tickets will go on-sale at 10.00am on Friday 22 March at for shows in Liverpool, Weymouth, Portsmouth, Southampton, Rhyl, High Wycombe, Brighton, Worthing, Nottingham, Reading, Chatham, Llandudno, Sheffield, Bristol, Bath, Torquay and Truro.

After two years spent TV presenting, stage acting, podcast hosting, dog walking and decorating the spare room, John is back doing the thing he loves most; standing on stage and making people laugh.

John said: “I’m delighted to be adding these additional dates to my 'Back At It' tour. The work in progress shows started about 10 days ago - the juices are flowing again and the response from the audiences has been incredible. I’m looking forward to seeing many more of you out there on the road.” 

John Bishop has had an incredible career. Within three years of his first ever comedy gig in 2000, John was playing to sold out arena audiences across the country and released the fastest selling stand-up DVD in UK history.

Since then he has achieved huge success with a number of his own comedy, entertainment and documentary shows including: ‘John Bishop’s Australia’ (BBC1), ‘John Bishop’s Britain’ (BBC1); ‘John Bishop’s Only Joking’ (Sky1); ‘The John Bishop Show’ (BBC1); ‘The John Bishop Christmas Show’ (BBC1) and ‘John Bishop’s Gorilla Adventure’ (ITV1), ‘John Bishop’s Ireland’ (ITV1) and four series of the critically acclaimed ‘John Bishop: In Conversation With…’ (W Channel) which saw him chatting one to one with some of the biggest names in entertainment, music and sport. Other TV credits include two series of ’The John Bishop Show’ (ITV1), ‘Doctor Who’ (BBC1) and the documentary John & Joe Bishop: Life After Deaf (ITV1). 

John also co-hosts the podcast Three Little Words, with writer, actor and director Tony Pitts.  The two friends talk to fascinating people about their lives, hopes, struggles and beliefs.  The show features a rich mix of guests, from world famous musicians and actors, to scientists, politicians, artists and sports stars.  Past guests have included Robbie Williams, John Cleese, Sebastian Faulks and Professor Brian Cox.

Last year, John starred in the four-month UK & Ireland tour of Mother Goose with Ian McKellen, which included a hugely successful run in London’s West End.
