Fancy a laugh?

Funny man John Bishop is heading to Sunderland next weekend - and you could be there for free.

We’ve teamed up with Sunderland Empire to give away a pair of tickets to his show on Friday, January 12, the first of two nights he is playing at the High Street West theatre.

Within three years of his first ever comedy gig, John was playing to sold-out arena audiences across the country and released the fastest selling stand-up DVD in UK history.

New show Winging It will see John back on stage for his fifth UK tour. His last tour Supersonic was watched by more than 500,000 people and received huge critical acclaim. He has also achieved success with a number of his own comedy and documentary shows including John Bishop’s Australia, John Bishop’s Britain, John Bishop’s Only Joking and The John Bishop Show.
