One of Britain's funniest comedians, John Bishop, will perform his first ever show in the Middle East, on Thursday May 29 at the Dubai World Trade Centre.

This exclusive date is prior to his 38-date UK arena tour this Autumn.

"I'm delighted to have been asked to perform in Dubai and very much looking forward to my first ever show in the Middle East. I've visited the city before and really enjoyed my time there, so I can't wait to get on stage at the World Trade Centre - bring on 29th May!"

Organised by Done Events and Lisa Thomas Management today the tickets are priced from Dh300 are available from Tuesday March 11, 10am, at all Virgin Megastores and Time Out Tickets.

Thomas Ovesen, COO from Done Events said; “John is one of the most requested comedians here in the region, so we are thrilled to be able to finally present him live in Dubai for his first Middle East show.  This will be his only show in the region and is for one night only, therefore we expect this show to be a sell out”.

Since winning the 'Best Male Breakthrough Act' at the British Comedy Awards in 2010, John Bishop has been selling out arenas with his inimitable style of humour and a unique take on Liverpudlian life. 

A regular face on UK television, John has starred in many shows including the BBC's 'Have I Got News For You' and 'John Bishop's Britain' and Sky TV's 'League Of Their Own' and 'John Bishop's Only Joking'.  Middle Eastern TV viewers will also recognise him as a regular on OSN's 'Live at the Apollo'.

An avid Liverpool football fan, John started out as a non-league player for Hyde and Southport, before progressing into comedy via several stand-up competitions. He is now one of the UK's best-loved comedians.
