John’s no jest-seller
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.”
