After the sell out success of his shows here in October comedy superstar John Bishop has announced 2 extra shows of his WINGING IT tour in Belfast & Dublin this January.
On announcing Winging It, John said: “I am delighted by the reaction to Winging It and can’t wait to bring the show back to Belfast and Dublin in January, where the tour began. The people of Ireland are always a great crowd to perform to and it’s going to be a fantastic couple of nights. It’s been three years since my last live tour and it’s great to be back out on the road, performing in front of live audiences. I’ve had nightly standing ovations, the audience has been overwhelming.”
Winging It sees John back on stage for his fifth UK & Ireland tour, performing in his own inimitable style. His last tour ‘Supersonic’ was watched by more than 500,000 people and received huge critical acclaim. ‘Rollercoaster’ in 2012 was another sell out, and followed the successes of his ‘Sunshine’ tour in 2011 and the ‘Elvis Has Left The Building’ show in 2010, for which he was nominated for an Edinburgh Comedy Award.
John Bishop has had an incredible career. Within three years of his first ever comedy gig, John was playing to sold out arena audiences across the country and released the fastest selling stand-up DVD in UK history.
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).
Recently John turned his hand to something completely different – interviewing. A new series called ‘John Bishop: In Conversation With…’ sees him chatting, one on one, with some of the UK’s biggest names from the world of entertainment, sport and music to discover the people behind the public persona, in 10 intimate and revealing one hour interviews on the W Channel.
