Des Bishop - Grey Matters
The fantasy of everlasting youth dyed with Des’s last purchase of Just for Men over a year ago. Now he is embracing the Grey and letting the wisdom of his years inspire his stand up. Grey Matters tackles the issues confronting Des these days, returning to live in New York, being surrounded by other people’s kids, gender and marriage equality, the dangers of snapchat, dating a Chinese woman, reaching 40 and most of all, after the documentary-style stand up show about his time in China, Des is looking forward to returning to straight stand up where he can riff about whatever is on his mind.

Jason Byrne Is Propped Up
Jason Byrne’s brand new show has everything you’ve come to expect from ‘The Outright King of Live Comedy’ (The Times), plus Ducks, False Chins, Portable Igloos, Bewildered Owls and much, much more. The star of ‘Wild Things’ (Sky 1) and ‘The Snaptastic Show’ (TV3) has gone back to his comedy roots, probably so he can pull them up and use them as a prop as well.
