LIVERPOOL-born comedian John Bishop will be performing at the Floral Pavilion during his UK tour next year.

Kicking off in Bromley, south-east London, on March 9, the 57-date live stand-up tour called Back At It, will include two shows at the Floral Pavilion in New Brighton on Sunday, November 3 at 4pm and 8pm.

Bishop, 56, said: "I’m delighted to be hitting the road again with my new show, Back At It.

"I did a few gigs in New York and some over in Ireland and I’ve got the juices flowing again.

"I’m looking forward to seeing you all out there on the road."

The Scouse actor first joined the comedy circuit in the early 2000s and has performed at Live At The Apollo and presented BBC entertainment show John Bishop’s Britain and ITV’s The John Bishop Show.
