CORONAVIRUS: All UK venues closed on 16th March 2020 and there is currently no planned general re-opening time. Some venues are showing on-line productions or outside productions - even a few covid safe internal ones and a number of tours and shows have been rescheduled for later in 2020 and throughout 2021. A few pantomimes may be possible but we await a relaxing of the rules for theatres from the Government.
In 2013, American-born, Irish-bred Des Bishop went to China to try and learn enough Chinese to do stand-up comedy in Mandarin, to a Chinese audience. Now he wants to make the world laugh about his experiences. From trying to find a girlfriend at a Beijing marriage market, to working as a waiter in Heilongjiang, and stand-up in Mandarin along the way, Made in China is a fun journey through a country we all feel we need to know better. If China is poised to take over the world, we'd better learn to make them laugh! Performers Des Bishop.
