    John Bishop has been enjoying his time in the sunshine, with his phenomenally fast rise to fame. From October 2010 to June 2011, he toured the UK, including arenas (as well as 8 shows at the Liverpool Echo Arena) with the sellout show Sunshine performing to over 400,000 people. His debut DVD, John Bishop Live - The Elvis has left the Building Tour', which was released last year, is the fastest selling debut stand-up DVD ever. It remains one of the top-sellers of the last year, and is now in the top ten selling stand up DVDs of all time. The show was recently watched by 3m viewers when it was aired on BBC One.

    The combination of John Bishop's ability to keep the laughs coming along with his unique brand of observational humour, his undeniable charm and unrivalled gift of creating a relaxed atmosphere means that the feel good factor of spending an evening in his company is absolutely priceless. Now audiences have the opportunity to enjoy that same experience with all the family, in the comfort of their own home, with John Bishop Live - The Sunshine Tour released on DVD, Blu-ray and download on 14th November.

    In this show John shares anecdotes about the ways in which his life has changed because of fame, he confesses to what his kids really think of him and he explains why this is his time in the sunshine. Exclusive to the DVD and Blu-ray, extra content includes a behind-the-scenes set tour, the making of the Night Fever video and a documentary about the Royal Albert Hall gig.

    John explains: " It's been a great journey and the Sunshine Tour gave me a great opportunity to share the joy, fun and madness of the whole experience of the last year."

    I got talked in to going to this in Bournemouth. I left at the interval. Absolutely dire. Bishop may well raise a smile in a small club but he was a charisma free zone in an auditorium. And he was over compensating by swearing as much as possible which, for some reason, seems to raise a cheap laugh. (This was in Bournemouth....maybe he went down better in the North).
