Evidently a fella who likes to fly by the seat of his pants, John Bishop left the comfort of a lucrative marketing job to work full time on his comedy act. 

It was certainly a brave decision to make, but one that has since been fully justified - the 55-year-old Liverpudlian is nowadays one of the UK’s best known and most highly regarded funnymen. 
Nowadays a regular face on TV - he’s currently assisting Dr Who, of course - his jokes include, “Being an England supporter is like being the over-optimistic parents of the fat kid on sports day,” and “Edinburgh is the only place you can be sunburned and get trench foot on the same day.”

John stops off in Birmingham with Right Here, Right Now, his eighth stand-up show.
