COMEDY superstar John Bishop is back at Sheffield’s Motorpoint Arena later this month after a huge demand for his recent show – and we have 10 tickets to giveaway.

The multi-award winning comedian and star of Live At The Apollo, Michael McIntyre’s Roadshow, Skins, Mock The Week and 8 Out of 10 Cats returns to the venue on Friday, May 20.

Bishop, aged 44, a former warm-up on the Friday Night with Jonathan Ross show, draws on material from his life’s experiences, including fatherhood, cycling around the world, playing semi-professional football and working as a nightclub doorman.

He is also an accomplished actor - he has appeared in the E4 teen drama Skins and in the Ken Loach film Route Irish. He also has a regular Sunday slot on Liverpool radio station Radio City 96.7.

In 2002, he was named best newcomer by BBC Radio Merseyside and in 2004 he won the North West Comedy Award for best stand-up.

In 2009 he appeared as the first act on Michael McIntyre’s Comedy Roadshow in Manchester and starred at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival, where his show Elvis Has Left the Building, was nominated for an “Eddie” (Edinburgh Comedy Award).

Now comes another chance to see his Arena show - back in Sheffield for one night only.

It is suitable for fans aged 16 and over.
