Head on down to the Herald Theatre and check out Des Bishop. If you like extreme honesty and a very high level of intensity to go with your comedy, you’re going to have a good night. Bishop moved from New York to County Wexford in Ireland when he 14 years old and his show is rich in observations he’s made from his life in both Ireland and the US.

No topic seems to be off limits or too taboo. Bishop has an exceptional ability to make people laugh, especially when he’s talking about serious themes. It takes an impressive talent to go from sharing his own experience dealing with testicular cancer to making us howl with knowing laughter at his take on hotel sex.

A wonderful end to the evening was his drumming session, yes…Des likes to Bang! Enlisting the talents of a brother and sister ‘act’ we got a demented cross between the Dido and Eminem collaboration and some suggestive gangsta drumming…much silly fun and the audience loved it.

If you like your comedy a little bit high brow with some naughtiness thrown in for good measure, he’s your man. Highly recommended.
