John Bishop: In Conversation with… HD

Lola Entertainment for W

Engaged as studio director for the chat show described by The Times as "simply superb"

I directed 2 episodes for the first series – with guests Charlotte Church and Kirsty Young.   And I was pleased to return for the second series, where I directed 5 episodes – with guests Lindsay Lohan, Olly Murs, Jason Manford, Ellie Simmonds and Davina McCall.

In addition, I led on the revamp of the opening sequence for series two.

"Simply superb"

5 stars

"Last night's John Bishop: In Conversation With was simply superb.   Desert Island discs' Kirsty Young spoke about her father leaving the family when she was three weeks' old, her vulnerability as a mother and her shock when David Dimbleby said he would like to take her to the island as his luxury.   Maybe she was simply returning the favour to a former castaway. Maybe, on the other hand, Bishop knew what questions to ask and this hour-long, one-on-one format granted space for the answers."
