John Bishop was born in Liverpool and grew up in Winsford and Runcorn, Cheshire. In 2006, approaching his 40th birthday, John left his job to pursue a career in comedy. Within three years he was playing to sell-out arenas and had released the fastest-selling debut DVD in history. Now a household name and one of the biggest stars in comedy, John has just completed his third nationwide arena tour. John lives with his wife and three sons in Cheshire and his hobbies include his dog Bilko and supporting Liverpool, but not always in that order.
Now in paperback, this is an entertaining memoir from the Liverpudlian comedian. It charts how, at the age of 40, he left his career in sales and marketing to become one of the biggest names in British comedy. Also describes his childhood growing up on a council estate, in a warm, colourful and very funny manner. Bishop has recently completed his 3rd nationwide arena tour.
