Now a household name, here’s a man who started his career in stand up playing to audiences of 17 people – Mr John Bishop.
John Bishop had been around for a few years with guest appearances here and there and Edinburgh Festival shows, but in 2010 he became far better known thanks to his BBC TV Show John Bishop’s Britain which ran for 12 episodes and 1 Christmas Special over two series.
John Bishop’s Britain is a mix of stand-up, sketches and real life stories from members of the public. Each week has a different topic and guest stars.
