John Bishop Winging It Tour 2017

John Bishop: Winging It Tour 2017 – Metro Radio Arena 8th & 9th November 2017

Comedy superstar John Bishop is set to return to an arena near you in autumn 2017, as he announces his long awaited return to stand-up comedy, with a brand new live show, WINGING IT. 

One of UK’s biggest stars, John will kick-off this huge 51 date tour on 4 October 2017 at Belfast’s SSE Arena, and will then perform at major arenas in Ireland and across the UK, before finishing in Bournemouth on 09 December.

John said: When I start this new tour, it will be three years since my last live show Supersonic, which is the longest break I’ve ever had. I’m very much looking forward to getting back on the road – there really is nothing like performing stand-up in front of a live audience. The new show is called Winging It, and in some respects having come to comedy relatively late, it sometimes feels like that’s what I’m doing in life! But I’m enjoying every minute of it.

Winging It will see John back on stage for his fifth UK tour, performing in his own inimitable style.  His first tour was the ‘Elvis Has Left The Building’ show in 2010, for which he was nominated for an Edinburgh Comedy Award, followed by the ‘Sunshine Tour’ in 2011. John’s 2012 ‘Rollercoaster’ was another sell out and received huge critical acclaim.  His most recent tour, ‘Supersonic’, was watched by more than 500,000 people. This show was subsequently recorded for DVD release at London’s Royal Albert Hall.

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).

Earlier this month 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. It has been announced that the show has been commissioned for another two series.

John has recently made a return to acting and will star in ITV’s Fearless alongside BAFTA award winner Sir Michael Gambon and actress Helen McCrory.  Written by Homeland writer Patrick Harbinson and produced by Mammoth Screen (credits include Poldark and Victoria), the six part series will TX in Spring this year.
