Comedian John Bishop has extended his Winging it tour, including three nights at the Ipswich Regent.

He will be at the theatre from January 23-35. He’ll also be at Southend’s Cliffs Pavilion on March 8. Tickets go on sale at 10am, November 13.

“I’m delighted by the reaction to Winging It. After a three year break since my last live tour, it’s a great feeling to be back out on the road and performing in front of a live audience again,” John said.

“I’ve had nightly standing ovations and the audience reaction has been incredible. I’m really looking forward to continuing the tour into 2018.”

The comedian, presenter and actor is known for shows including A League of Their Own, John Bishop’s Britain and most recently John Bishop: In Conversation With...

He’s sold more than 250,000 tickets for the 2017 leg of Winging It so far. Tickets for the Ipswich and Southend gigs are expected to sell quickly.
