Comedy superstar John Bishop is getting Back At It – doing what he does best – with a new UK stand-up tour for 2024.

After two years spent TV presenting, stage acting, podcast hosting, dog walking and decorating the spare room, Bishop is getting back to the thing he loves most – standing on stage and making people laugh.

His huge tour kicks off in Bromley on March, 9, and will play 57 dates at a host of venues throughout next year, including two nights at the iconic London Palladium and Inverness's very own Eden Court on September 8.

Announcing the new tour, Bishop said: “I’m delighted to be hitting the road again with my new show, ‘Back At It’.

"I did a few gigs in New York and some over in Ireland and I’ve got the juices flowing again! I’m looking forward to seeing you all out there on the road.”

The tour also visits Dorking, Guildford, Southend, Aylesbury, Buxton, Scunthorpe, Harrogate, Newcastle-upon-Tyne, Bradford, Halifax, Stockton, Sunderland, Stoke-on-Trent, Warrington, Ipswich, Milton Keynes, Wolverhampton, York, Dunfermline, Edinburgh, Paisley, Perth, Dundee, Basingstoke, Hastings, Croydon, Warwick, Blackpool, Scarborough, New Brighton, Stockport, Peterborough, Cambridge, Oxford, Bexhill and culminates in Tunbridge Wells.

Within three years of Bishop's first ever comedy gig in 2000, he 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’, ‘John Bishop’s Only Joking’, ‘The John Bishop Show’ and many more.

He also made a name for himself after appearing in profound sci-fi show, Doctor Who, numerous times.

Bishop is co-host of the podcast Three Little Words. With writer, actor and director Tony Pitts, 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 musicians and actors, to scientists, politicians, artists and sports stars.

Past guests have included Robbie Williams, John Cleese, Sebastian Faulks and Professor Brian Cox.
