John Bishop to explore Ireland in new programme for ITV


John Bishop will embark on a 600-mile road trip around Ireland in a new series to be broadcast on ITV.

The comedian, 52, will visit historic sites, learn Irish customs and perform his comedy in pubs and stadiums.

His exploits will be broadcast across four 30-minute episodes, which have been commissioned by ITV.

He said: “Ireland holds a very special place in my heart and always has done, even before I started stand-up comedy.

“So to have the opportunity to travel around, meet local people, make them laugh and experience new things along the way has been a total joy.”

John quit his job as a pharmaceutical sales representative to become a stand-up comedian and host after gigging around Ireland.

After his initial stand up shows across the UK he joined Radio City here in Liverpool hosting a regular Sunday afternoon show, from there he has gone on to become one of the most famous faces on TV and in comedy.

John Bishop’s Ireland is co-produced by Lola Entertainment, Bishop’s TV production company, as well as Twofour and Moondog Productions.
