Last year, John performed to over 400,000 fans in his nationwide sell-out Sunshine tour, topped the charts with the fastest selling debut stand-up DVD ever, and regularly broadcast into the homes of over 6.5m viewers throughout his primetime BBC One show, John Bishop’s Britain. But the public clearly haven’t seen enough of him yet, and so the ‘Comedy Superstar’ (Daily Telegraph) is back on the road later this year.

John said, “I’m delighted to be taking the Rollercoaster Tour to Dublin’s O2 this year. The missus will be glad to have me out of the house! It’s not every day you get the opportunity to do an arena tour, and it’s always humbling to come home and find that no one’s even noticed you’ve been gone. But in truth, it’s really exciting to get this opportunity and I can’t wait to get out on the road again. ”
