Des Bishop

Spending his teenage years in Ireland after growing up in New York has not only given Bishop a mongrel accent, but a complex mix of Queens confidence and Blarney charm all wrapped in a self-effacing confusion. It's a confusion that invades the intimate moments of his life, as his fears become genuine, creating a show of empathy, if not quite originality.

Des Bishop: Desfunctional

Why do some people struggle with intimacy? Is there a difference between shame and guilt? Can a comedian be funny about trying not to turn every emotional experience into a joke? Bishop is dealing with things on stage. **** (Scotsman).
