What’s It All About? You could be forgiven, after reading the title of this programme, that it’s all about what John Bishop got up to during 2012.
But in fact, he’s taking a look back at the year in general - and what an amazing period it was. Even if only the Olympics had taken place, it would have been a great year, but add that to the Paralympics and the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee, and you’ve got something quite remarkable.
There were ups as well as downs of course - the failure of the English football team, the continuation of the recession, and the wettest June on record.
Look Out For: John’s stand-up routines among the clips and sketches. They’re funny too, but you get the impression that alone on a stage with a microphone is where he’s most comfortable - and at his best.
John says: “At the end of every year newspapers and magazines often do a summary of the world in pictures reflecting back on the year just passed. This is a much more alive version of those retrospectives - with footage from actual events interspersed with our very own comedy sketches and narratives, celebrating what has been a momentous year.”
