Comedian John Bishop Performs Best Joke Of His Career, Gets Kicked In The Face By Robbie Fowler (Video)

By Alan Duffy

In recent years, comedian John Bishop has gone from B-list comic to A-Grade star, due to his rather gentle, if charming, brand of homespun japery.

Anyway, before Liverpool’s defeat to West Brom on Monday night, the comedian took part in a pre-match penalty shoot-out with legendary striker (and homophobic Le Saux taunter of old) Robbie Fowler in aid of the ‘Seeing Is Believing’ charity which fights avoidable blindness around the world.

Fowler was to take his spot-kick blindfolded but instead of hitting the target, the Liverpool legend  fired the ball from close-range at Biship, who was attempting some kind of tomfoolery or other.

Anyway, watch Mr. Bishop gets walloped by Fowler. Genuine guffaws, all-round.

    Didn’t really need the homophobe comment.

  2. CC says:

    Why not? He is a homophobe after all.

  3. C says:

    Kinda classless with the homophobe comment…

  4. Milkchew says:

    `homophobe`? That right there is Libel. Enjoy your court case with the second most rich English sportsman.

  5. Mr. Chopper says:

    Fowler taunted Le Saux with a homophobic insult. Is that better for you all?

  6. Si says:

    To the above: Fowler has admitted and apologised for his behaviour, which involved the making of homophobic comments*, towards Le Saux, which the post refers to.

    * (especially recently via Tritter, as his original apology was carefully worded so as to avoid legal action)

    It is worth noting that both players have apologised to each other in the past but Le Saux has publicised on more than one occasion the homophobic comments / actions that Fowler made. This is a matter of public record.

    It is sure funny that Fowler did not sue Le Saux over his comments, eh…?

    Whilst I am sure that Fowler is certainly not a homophobe and has never had a yearning for class A drugs, his reputation in the eyes of the non-Scouse public was tarnished a long while ago, despite being for all intents and purposes a decent enough bloke. After all, mud sticks.

    That said, I do love seeing John Bishop come to pain. Good on you, Robbie!

    far from homophobic, growler showed him his arse.

    very nearly took his life in his own hands.
