When I was at the Edinburgh Fringe in 2007, I went to see Northern comic and favourite Justin Moorhouse at the Pleasance Courtyard. As Moorhouse was finished his show, he recommended a show that was on next door. I had nothing booked so I went to see John Bishop play to an audience of seven people.
Three years later in 2010 after his career had skyrocketed, I saw him again at the Fringe where Bishop performed his solo show Sunshine in a much bigger venue. After becoming very famous, he had lost none of his Liverpool everyman appeal on the audience and the show was upbeat and straightforward.
I watched An Evening with John Bishop for Always Be Comedy Online where he chatted to compere James Gill about his successful comedy career. Bishop has achieved sell-out tours and is one of the most popular comedians currently working today.
