Des Bishop is back with his new show Lately. The world has changed, Ireland has changed and Des’s life has changed…A LOT. Lately is an hilarious, in your face standup show that talks about all this and more as Des tried to make sense of all the changes in his life and all our lives.

Edgy material snappy never sappy Bishop has judged this one beautifully.   The Age, Melbourne

Now a massive star in Ireland, native New Yorker, Des moved from Queens to Ireland in his mid-teens in 1990. He first came to prominence with his extraordinary TV series The Des Bishop Work Experience (2004), where he lived on minimum wage in a series of different jobs in Ireland. Mixing this documentary footage with stand-up, the series became one of the most talked-about of the year, and propelled Des into national stardom.

Des has appeared on many live stand up shows including Edinburgh Comedy Festival Live (BBC), Live at the Comedy Store (Comedy Centraland Australian music themed quiz show Spicks and Specks (ABC). He was also the star of HBO’s “A Comic’s Climb” about his debut at the Aspen Comedy festival in 2005.

The openness and honesty of his presenting style combined with his restless imagination and perceptive comic observations make Des Bishop a must-see for fans of unique, insightful and provocative comedy.
