Episode 21 - Des Bishop

I first got to know Des Bishop when I was running a comedy club on Thursday nights in The International Bar called The Mad Cow Comedy Club. He was a new act doing ten minute slots. Then I gave him a twenty minute slot and he bombed so I told him I was demoting him back to ten minute slots. Amazingly he thanks me for this now for giving him a reality check. I loved having this conversation with him because as I find with a lot of my guests that I've known throughout the years I find out more about them in that one hour than I have while bumping into them at various gigs. Des has gone on to do a load of TV work including, Joy In The Hood (which gave a break to my previous guest Willy White) and In The Name Of The Fada and wrote the best seller book My Dad Was Nearly James Bond.
