The Daily Telegraph calls him the 'King of the One-hundred-Liner' while The Daily Mirror says 'he has taken on the mantle of Britain's top comic'. That being the case, let's give it up for stand-up star John Bishop who is bringing his brand new show, Winging It, to Dubai World Trade Centre on December 14.

Though Bishop's show is part of the new DXBLaughs comedy series, this is not the first time he has been to our shore. He last performed at a sell-out show in the UAE in 2014 and is excited to return to the city. "I'm very much looking forward to being back in Dubai - there really is nothing like performing stand-up in front of a live audience.  The new show is called Winging It, and in some respects having come to comedy relatively late, it sometimes feels like that's what I'm doing in life!  But I'm enjoying every minute of it," Bishop said.

Another favourite comic, Eddie Izzard, who is bringing his Force Majeure show to Dubai later this month is inaugurating the DXBLaughs show. "We are proud to be working with John once again, while we are bringing leading comedians to Dubai as part of DXBLaughs', said Girish Bhat, managing director at Done Events.

Winging It is Bishop's fifth UK tour following his most recent Supersonic show. John also has an extensive catalogue of TV work. His shows including John Bishop's Britain, John Bishop's Gorilla Adventure  and The John Bishop Show air on BBC.  For more information, visit
