John Bishop is an award-winning Liverpudlian comedian using his own unique brand of observational humour with a gift for storytelling and is currently hailed as one of the best comedy talents in the UK today.

It all began when John wandered into a Manchester comedy club & faced with the choice of either paying the entrance fee or getting in for free if he performed, he chose the latter! Within a year he was headlining the clubs and reaching the finals of the Daily Telegraph Open Mic and BBC New Comedy awards.

His awards include; Winner Best Male Breakthrough Artist British Comedy Awards 2010, Winner Best Comedy Programme RTS North Award 2010, Nominee Edinburgh Comedy Awards 2009.

John has appeared in numerous programmes including; John Bishop’s Only Joking, Panto, John Bishop’s Big Year, Who Do You Think You Are, John Bishop’s Week of Hell, A League of Their Own, UNICEF Soccer Aid, John Bishop’s Britain, QI, Have I Got News For You, Mock the Week, 8 Out of 10 Cats, Live at the Apollo, Michael McIntyre’s Comedy Roadshow plus many more. John has also made his dramatic acting debut in Ken Loach’s acclaimed Iraq war film, Route Irish.

John has also become one of the country’s most successful live comedians playing huge UK tours. These have included Elvis Has Left the Building which ended with a sell-out night at Wembley Arena and also became a best-selling DVD. He followed this with the even bigger Sunshine tour which took in even more of the country’s largest arenas & is looking forward to the Supersonic Tour throughout 2014.

John has a wonderful relaxed style of delivery and connects with his audience. His observations are drawn from varied aspects of life including; fatherhood to cycling around the world, from a successful career in pharmaceuticals to playing semi-professional football (and beating a team featuring Jamie Redknapp).

John’s ability to keep any audience – large or small – engaged and entertained in his own unique style creates an event to remember.
