- John bishop's Australia.
I really enjoyed it. We did a trip to the Blue Mountains when we were over there in 2006 and the view was totally obscured by mist. I was gutted; long way to drive from Sydney to look at some mist.
Programmes like this just make me want to pack a bag, draw out my savings and bugger off somewhere for a couple of years!Posted 3 years agocakefacesmallblockSubscriber
John Bishop always comes across as a really nice bloke. He ain’t lazy and he gets stuck in. What does amaze me though is that he’s managed to make a career from being , in my view , the most appalling ” comedian” the BBC have been able to afford in years.Posted 3 years agowinstonMember
Stumpy – I used to work in Katoomba. One day I was up at the resort in dense mist (very common so you weren’t that unlucky) and bus load of Japanese tourists pulled up. They all trooped out and the leader asked me which direction the three sisters were. It was a total white out, visibility down to about 10ft but I pointed in the general direction and apologized for the weather. They all pointed their cameras that way and took a photo – every one of them.Posted 3 years agostumpy01Member
Winston – we were lead to the ‘viewing’ spot and told in no uncertain terms not to walk any further foward, as you couldn’t actually see where the cliff edge was!
With regard to the Japanese tourists with their cameras; never seen anything like it. Funny thing was finding a different viewpoint for a pic and watching the stampede as they cottoned on to what you were taking a piccie of.Posted 3 years agoB.A.NanaMember
I watched it. Was indifferent about him before and still indifferent about him after watching. Will probably carry on watching, because I’ve been up and down the Oz west coast a few times due to my oldest sister emigrating to Sydney. Sorry, can’t particularly put a finger on why he doesn’t press the buttons for me, might be as simple as his accent, face or his teeth, I’m not sure.Posted 3 years ago
Clive James once did a great programme about Oz.grumMember

This. It’s completely inexplicable how he has such a successful career as a “comedian”.Posted 3 years agoconvertSubscriber
If I understand what they said correctly, back in 1992 he rode from Sydney back to the UK, not just this Australian leg. That’s some going if correct and puts his more recent charity rides in some perspective.
Again, can’t help but like the guy and be impressed by his sporting CV and the fact that he had a real job before the turn to comedy but don’t find him the most stimulating comedian I’ve ever watched.Posted 3 years ago
