John Bishop's Britain

Series 2 - 6. John Bishop's Britain Christmas Special

Review by:
David Butcher

John Bishop has a way about him. He is the master of turning the overcooked sprouts of observational gags into the bubble and squeak of watchable comedy. Even when his material is tired, like a routine about Nativity plays, he sweeps us along in its silliness. As usual, the contributions from celebs and members of the public are the best bits.

About this programme

6/6. The Liverpudlian hosts a festive special, inviting a Manchester theatre audience to join him in celebrating typically British themes. A mixture of stand-up, sketches and real-life stories from celebrities and members of the public, with highlights including Noddy Holder's opinion on Christmas songs.
