John’s no jest-seller

Daily Star Sunday - - FRONT PAGE -

JOHN Bishop went un­der­cover ★ to sell his lat­est DVD…but it didn’t quite go to plan.

The co­me­dian was given long hair, glasses and a scruffy beard be­fore pos­ing as a cashier at HMV’s flag­ship store on Lon­don’s Ox­ford Street. But when he tried to get shop­pers to buy his lat­est stand-up re­lease Wing­ing It, he had lit­tle luck. Even when John of­fered some the DVD for free they de­clined. One woman said: “No thank you…I wouldn’t watch it.”

But he did at least find one cou­ple who rated him. They said: “Your gags on re­la­tion­ships are the only thing that’s kept us mar­ried.”
