Comedian John Bishop returns to Dubai

Liverpudlian to bring his Winging It show to World Trade Centre in December

UK comedian John Bishop has confirmed he will be returning to Dubai with his brand new arena show this December.

Bishop last appeared in the city in 2014, and will be bringing his 2017 live show Winging It to the Dubai World Trade Centre on Thursday December 14, Time Out reports. His show in Dubai will follow an multi-city UK tour including more than 50 arena shows.

His last tour in 2014, entitled Supersonic, toured the UK to an audience of half a million ticket holders and Bishop has, in that time, become a household name as one of the best comedy acts in the country today.

Announcing the addition of the Dubai gig to his touring schedule, Bishop said he can’t wait to be back, and commented that the title of the tour reflects how he feels about his comedy career so far, having turned pro fairly late in life.

“I’m very much looking forward to being back in Dubai - there really is nothing like performing stand-up in front of a live audience,” he said.

“The new show is called Winging It, and in some respects having come to comedy relatively late, it sometimes feels like that’s what I’m doing in life! But I’m enjoying every minute of it.”

The one-night-only gig is being produced by DXBLaughs, by Done Events, which is also the company behind Eddie Izzard’s visit to Dubai later this month.

DXBLaughs says more high-profile comedians are going to be bringing tours to the city throughout 2017.

“We are very proud to be working with John once again bringing the leading comedians to Dubai as part of DXBLaughs,” said Done Events MD Girish Bhat. Tickets for John Bishop’s Winging It tour are on sale now.

From Dhs250. 7pm-11pm,Thu December 14. Tickets available from www.dxblaughs.ae
