A totally compelling story about a father's sacrifices, and the midlife awakening of an errant son ... He brings honesty, perceptiveness and thirty-five years' worth of bottled-up love
*Guardian - on the stage show, My Dad Was Nearly James Bond*

One of the most funny, moving and satisfying hours of comedy you're likely to see this year. Deeply personal and touching, yet never over-emotional, this is truly inspiring.
*Time Out - on the stage show, My Dad Was Nearly James Bond*

Will make your spirit soar as you laugh your socks off and feel your heart squeezed ... a show about family, growing up and dealing with life's big moments
* - on the stage show, My Dad Was Nearly James Bond*

Listening to Bishop talk about his father - passionate, thoughtful, realistic - you realize that finding the humour in terminal illness sounds like a rather noble way of looking at both life and death
