This huge tour will visit major theatres and arenas around the UK and Ireland including Ipswich Regent Theatre on both 23 November 2021 and 13 January 2022.
Tickets go on sale at 10am this Friday, 18 September.
Please note these new dates are separate to the rescheduled 2020 ‘Work In Progress’ show, which will now take place next year (on 20 October 2021) due to Covid-19 theatre closures.
On announcing the World Tour, John said: “I’m excited to announce these new dates for my brand new show ‘Right Here, Right Now’, which will kick off in the Autumn next year. After the last six months we’ve all endured, it feels like a lifetime since I last performed in front of a live audience. There’s nothing like stand-up comedy to put a smile back on your face, so I can’t wait to get back out on the road to perform this new show across the UK, Ireland and around the world.”
This will be John’s eighth tour and his first since 2017/2018, when he performed to over 400,000 people on his critically acclaimed ‘Winging It’ tour.
John Bishop has had an incredible career. Within three years of his first ever comedy gig in 2000, John was playing to sold out arena audiences across the country and released the fastest selling stand-up DVD in UK history.
Since then 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). More recently ‘John Bishop’s Ireland’ for ITV1 and four mammoth series of the critically acclaimed ‘John Bishop: In Conversation With…’ (W Channel) which saw him chatting one to one with some of the biggest names in the world of entertainment, music and sport.
Earlier this month John launched a new podcast with writer, actor and director Tony Pitts called ‘Three Little Words’, in which the two friends talk to fascinating people about their lives, hopes, struggles and beliefs. The show features a rich mix of guests, from world famous celebrities to scientists, politicians, artists and sports stars, each with an unforgettable story to share. Each guest brings along the three words that mean something important to them – plus the one word they never want to hear again.
Tickets for both dates of John Bishop’s new tour go on sale at 10am this Friday, 18 September.
