Des Bishop is Back in The Source Arts Centre Thurles

Des Bishop was due to visit The Source in February with his funny yet touching show about his relationship with his father. However events took a turn for the worse and his father passed away, meaning he couldn’t appear at The Source as arranged.

Des will be at The Source on Thursday 10th March with a newly rewritten version of “My Dad Was Nearly James Bond.” Some of the show was written in conjunction with his father and a new ending had been prepared just in case his father died. Part of the inspiration for the show was the fact that his father had been diagnosed with lung cancer and a lot of stereotypical father / son behaviour needed to be put under the spotlight. There would always only be one outcome to his dad’s condition and the new show takes this into account.

This is a comedy show with heart. It strives past the quick cheap laughs of other less sophisticated comics and is bound to be an experience to remember.

Des Bishop: My Dad Was Nearly James Bond is at The Source Arts Centre on 10th March at 8pm. Tickets €22 / €20 concession.
