The tour is a follow up to his sell-out 150 date ‘Winging It’ show from 2017.

‘Right Here Right Now’ kicks off in Peterborough on 21 September next year as Bishop embarks on dates across the UK and Ireland with a final performance at London's 02 arena on 8 April 2022.

He 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."

The comedian was forced to postpone 'work in progress' shows for this autumn to early 2021 due to the coronavirus pandemic, with tickets for the rescheduled dates also being made available.

He said in a statement earlier this year: "I am sorry to say that we have made the decision to move the dates that I had booked for autumn 2020 into 2021.

"I am massively disappointed that due to the current ongoing situation has forced us to postpone these sold out shows but for the health and safety of everyone attending and working at the theatres and to ensure that the dates have the best chance of being fulfilled it makes sense to move them. I look forward to seeing everyone next year."
