Suitably titled The John Bishop Show, the series will see him perform stand up and interview a variety of guests.
He might be toning down his quirky one-liners for his new audience, but there are a whole host of jokes which make Bishop one of the most consistent UK comedians on the circuit.
So, what are some of his top one-liners from previous tours, and when is he next on tour?
Best John Bishop jokes
On being an England fan:
“Being an England supporter is like being the over-optimistic parents of the fat kid on sports day.”
“Edinburgh is the only place you can be sunburned and get trench foot on the same day.”
On his teenage son:
“To be honest, I’m not sure the same kid comes home each night."
On performing in front of comic legend Ken Dodd:
"It was like trying to make love to your wife in front of a porn star - ‘I’m doing my best here! I know you can probably do it better but don’t look at me like that!’."
On over-complicating life:
"Going to the dump used to be great, you would go to the dump and get rid of stuff - now you have to pass an exam. I turned up at the dump and there’s a guy there in a yellow vest and a clipboard. He’s done an NVQ in clipboard management."
On being THAT friend:
"Everyone knows that when you’ve got friends, one of your friends is basically a d**khead. If you’re thinking, ‘None of my mates are a d**khead ... well..."
On getting older:
“There are some muscles I don’t think I need my personal trainer to find as I won’t be using them at my age anyway.”
On celebrity friends:
“I have been privileged to get to know Kenny Dalgish and I would call him a friend – though his lawyer would call me a stalker (I don’t know why – just because I was in his garden!).”
On Courtney Love:
“I was only in her company two hours, but I can’t blame that Kurt Cobain fella.”
On being a dad:
“It must be cool having a dad who’s a comedian,” I overheard a friend say. “No,” came my son’s reply. “He’s a knob.”
What did he say about his TV content?
Bishop said he feels he is “judged in a different way” when on TV, as opposed to performing in front of a live audience.
“‘When I am on tour I can say anything I want on stage and you can work within the parameters of the audience feedback because it’s immediate,” he told the Daily Star.
“When it’s on telly I get judged in a different way. If people want to get offended they will get offended before you’ve even finished your sentence.‘It gets judged by a different world,” he added.
