Made in China - T01347377945In 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!

Coming Home - T02029507214Des Bishop is coming home after spending over a year in China. He has some fun stories to tell about that: from working in a restaurant in the North East for a month to trying to find a wife in a Marriage park; plus some great journeys with Leo his co-worker from the Abrakebabra days. But he also can't wait to tell you about all the things he missed about home: democracy, milk, sarcasm and so much more. Most importantly though Des just can't wait to speak English without being censored. Absence makes the heart grow funnier, so come and check out this unique show.
