Following last year’s hugely successful sell-out UK arena tour, John Bishop announces that he will be performing his critically acclaimed ‘Supersonic’ show, for one night only on Tue 31 Mar at The Brighton Centre.
This show will be one of the last times John will perform Supersonic. After the Brighton show, he will perform Supersonic for one last time at London’s Royal Albert Hall, filming the show for a DVD release later this year.
Announcing the show, John said: “I’m thrilled to be performing Supersonic again at The Brighton Centre. The reaction to last year’s tour was amazing, so I’m really looking forward to the getting back on stage in March and I hope the fans are too!”
After taking an 18 month break from comedy to write his autobiography, John is now back on stage where he belongs, making people laugh. Not content with just writing his autobiography, John has squeezed plenty in over the last few years. In 2012, John performed to 500,000 people in his sell-out Rollercoaster tour. With its massive helter-skelter set and surprise finale, the DVD of the show went on to top the charts.
John ended 2013 with a Royal engagement with Her Majesty, when he hosted the prestigious Royal Variety Show before Christmas and his own TV Christmas Special on BBC One. Before this, John starred in John Bishop’s Britain (BBC One) and John Bishop’s Only Joking (Sky 1). He cycled, rowed and ran from Paris to London in his one-off special for Sport Relief John Bishop’s Week of Hell (BBC One), and has been a regular on Sky 1’s A League of their Own in addition to hosting Live at the Apollo.
2014 saw John return to BBC One with his debut international travelogue for a three part series entitled John Bishop’s Australia which was broadcast in July. We saw John retrace the route of a mammoth bike journey he first made as a 25-year-old back in 1992. Using his original diary as a tour guide, he cycled from Sydney up the East Coast of Australia towards far Northern Queensland and encountered an extraordinary range of vivid characters; heard their fascinating stories and experienced the true natural wonders Australia has to offer.
Adding another string to his bow, John has also turned to acting under the direction of Ken Loach in ‘Route Irish’ and the critically acclaimed Jimmy McGovern’s series ‘Accused’. Christmas 2014 saw John host an hour-long special on BBC One, recorded at London’s Dominion Theatre. John Bishop brings Supersonic to The Brighton Centre on Tue 31 Mar, 2015
