Comedian John Bishop will be tickling the city's funny bones when he performs a one-night only show at Bristol Hippodrome on Monday 11th September 2017.

John Bishop

Entitled Winging It, it's his first brand new live show after a three year hiatus following the massive success of his last show, Supersonic. Previous to that, his other tours - Rollercoaster, Sunshine and Elvis Has Left The Building - were all huge critical and commercial hits, the latter seeing him receive an Edinburgh Comedy Award nomination. 


Bishop's career trajectory over the past few years has been nothing short of astonishing, going from strength to strength and proving one of the country's most respected and popular comedians and seeing the mirth-meister playing to a succession of sold-out venues and releasing the fastest-selling stand-up DVD in UK history.


His rib-tickling talents have stretched across comedy, entertainment and documentary programmes, including the likes of John Bishop's Britain, The John Bishop Show and John Bishop's Only Joking. Most recently he's forged a career path following in the interviewing footsteps of Wogan and Parky with John Bishop: In Conversation With..... in which he banters and chats in-depth with some of the biggest names in music, sport and entertainment. 


One of contemporary comedy's brightest and most hilarious stars, tickets for the Scouse funnyman's Hippodrome gig are £33.65 and you can get Bristol Hippodrome tickets here.
