Comedian John Bishop will be Right Here, Right Now at the M&S Bank Arena – in 2022.
The Liverpool-born funnyman is bringing his world tour to the Liverpool waterfront for two dates on March 4 and 5.
The tour is due to open in Peterborough in September next year and will visit theatres and arenas across the UK and Ireland, including a date at Warrington’s Parr Hall on September 5 2021.
The 53-year-old comedian, actor, presenter and charity fundraiser said: “After the last six months we’ve all endured, it feels like a lifetime since I last performed in front of a live audience.
“There’s nothing like stand-up comedy to put a smile back on your face, so I can’t wait to get back out on the road to perform this new show across the UK, Ireland and around the world."
Right Here, Right Now is Bishop’s eighth major solo tour and his first since Winging It in 2017/18 where he played to more than 400,000 people across the country.
Next month marks 20 years since the then pharmaceuticals rep first tried his hand at stand-up, and the following year he made it to the finals of the So You Think You’re Funny? competition.
His career, which in its early days included playing Herman the Henchman in a Royal Court panto, has seen a meteoric rise over the last decade to make him one of the most recognised faces on the screen.
Earlier this month he launched a new podcast – Three Little Words - with writer, actor and director Tony Pitts in which the two friends talk to fascinating people about their lives, hopes, struggles and beliefs.
Right Here, Right Now is at the M&S Bank Arena on March 4-5 2022. Tickets HERE
