Largely funny, tender and acutely observed ode to late father
An ode to Bishop’s late father, Mike, this should leave the most emotional tough-nut shaken and stirred, as Des tells the story of his dad’s life, from stage actor, Ford model and ‘almost Bond’ to regular ‘Queens, New York’ dad. Walking the line between pathos and pity, this is largely funny, tender and acutely observed.
