There is no doubt that award-winning comedian John Bishop is not only one of the most high-profile comics in the country, but has become a national treasure. Oozing charisma and boasting a hilarious, relatable humour which draws on his real life experiences, Bishop has sold out arenas with his incredible live performances.
Hailing from Liverpool, Bishop’s comedy career began when he started performing stand-up comedy in Manchester in 2000 and a year later, he was a finalist in all of the major new act competitions including So You Think You're Funny, the Daily Telegraph Open Mic Awards, the BBC New Comedy Awards as well as winning the Comedian of the Year Award.
Following this, Bishop’s comedy career took off and in 2002, he won the title of best newcomer by BBC Radio Merseyside and in 2009, he achieved the Edinburgh Comedy award. Having raised £4.2 million for Sport Relief in 2012, Bishop is also known for his charity work.
