WDYTYA UK John Bishop episode

The much delayed final episode of the BBC current season of WDYTYA featured British stand up comedian John Bishop. A Canadian connection for his paternal great great grandfather cropped up with a marriage, found in the Drouin collection, in Montreal while he was a bandsman in the British army. Bishop took great delight in finding his ancestor had subsequently been a prominent performer in minstrel shows, even playing in some of the same theatres he has played.
