John Bishop

Comedian & Event Host

Perhaps one of the nation’s most famous and recognisable comedians, John Bishop has become a comical superstar, touring across the nation and selling out huge arenas and making the nation burst into fits of laughter with appearances on some of the biggest television shows around. After performing stand up comedy for the first time in Manchester in October 2000, John quickly became a prominent feature on the comedy circuit, featuring in the Daily Telegraph Open Mic Awards and the BBC Comedy Awards.

An ideal personality for events and private functions, John can perform to guests or act as event host to run proceedings and ensure all guests have an amusing and enjoyable time.

John first appeared on Michael McIntyre’s Comedy Roadshow in 2009, making a favourable impression on all viewers who enjoyed his straight-talking observations about everyday life. In the same year he appeared on BBC Three’s Lunch Monkeys, Channel 4’s Comedy Showcase and BBC’s Celebrity Mastermind. John’s comedian stand up content is taken from his past experiences and careers, including fatherhood, life as a semi-professional footballer and working as a nightclub doorman.

John became a household name as a comedian after featuring as a regular panelist on the hit Sky show A League of Their Own with James Corden, Jamie Redknapp and Andrew Flintoff. John secured his own television show on the BBC named John Bishop’s Britain, taking a look at the stranger aspects of everyday life in Britain. Other television appearances include Have I Got News for You, Would I Lie to You and Friday Night with Jonathon Ross, in which he revealed he had previously worked on set as a warm-up.

John undertook the mammoth task of a 290 mile triathlon from Paris to London in 2010 in order to raise money for the charity Sport Relief. John cycled 185 miles, rowed across the English Channel and then ran the 90 miles from Dover to London over three days. For John’s efforts, he raised £3.4 million pounds for the charity and received huge praise from the nation for overcoming the adversity of the huge challenge he undertook and the manner in which he achieved it.
