John Bishop to come to Ipswich Regent Theatre as part of Back At It tour





After a two-year hiatus due to acting, presenting and podcasting, comedian John Bishop will return to Suffolk for one night only next year as he brings back his stand-up routine.

With his 57-date ‘Back At It’ tour kicking off in March, The Liverpudlian will come to the Ipswich Regent Theatre on July 11.

Announcing the tour, Mr Bishop said: “I’m delighted to be hitting the road again with my new show, ‘Back At It’.

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