John Bishop (2 stars)

This article is from 2007.

Six months ago, sparkly-toothed Scouser Bishop was a marketing man in a pinstripe suit. But bored of the humdrum routine, and keen to make his kids proud, he bravely jacked it in to go pro as a stand-up. His open heart story of marriage breakdown, depression and daytime boozing gets overly heavy, but natural warmth and nice guy patter bring it back from the brink.
