Des Bishop is back, he likes to bang the drums, and he is not afraid to show it. Combining his love of hip hop, strong jokes, audience participation, and a new-found passion for drumming, Des has fun with wordplay in his new stand-up show.
“It’s going to be a bit silly, a bit musical, a bit improvised,” says Des. “The title comes from being given an electronic drum kit as a gift recently. I started messing around with it and ended up behind a set on stage. It went really well, so I’ve put together a comedy show with a bit of rhythm in it.”
Bishop’s famously warm, honest, presenting style and restless imagination will be in evidence again, most recently seen in the worldwide success of his previous live show, My Dad Was Nearly James Bond. He has since released a book of the same name inspired by his experiences and RTE aired a TV documentary on the subject. Des will be taking to the stage in the Royal Theatre, Castlebar, on Saturday, November 10 at 8pm, tickets cost €28.
