John Bishop

is sitting opposite me on the train. Doesn’t seem to be as funny as he used to be. 

Two questions. 

1. What does RoF say I should ask him (apart from ‘why are you not as funny as you used to be?’)

2. Why is he now a leaden faced commuter like the rest of us, on the 7ish train to London regularly? Has a season ticket so is no irregular visitor. Is he in a theatre season or something?

He has two note books. One red one apparently for ideas and one black moleskine for diary things. They have big lettered notes to self and drawings - sketches (one of a bow legged cowboys desert, cactus, sun, cowboy hat etc). Also a phone and iPad. Gets on in running gear. Looks fit and slim for his age.
