These new dates are separate to the rescheduled 2020 ‘Work In Progress’ shows, which will now take place next year due to Covid-19 theatre closures.

John said: “After the last six months we’ve all endured, it feels like a lifetime since I last performed in front of a live audience.

“There’s nothing like stand-up comedy to put a smile back on your face, so I can’t wait to get back out on the road to perform this new show across the UK, Ireland and around the world.”

Within three years of his first ever comedy gig in 2000, John was playing to sold out arena audiences across the country and released the fastest selling stand-up DVD in UK history

Since then he has achieved huge success with a number of his own comedy, entertainment and documentary shows.

Earlier this month John launched a new podcast with writer, actor and director Tony Pitts called ‘Three Little Words’, in which the two friends talk to fascinating people about their lives, hopes, struggles and beliefs.

The show features a rich mix of guests, from world famous celebrities to scientists, politicians, artists and sports stars, each with an unforgettable story to share.
