Comedy fest review: Des Bishop in Made in China

Comedy fest review: Des Bishop in Made in China

I’ll copy/paste the blurb for Des’ show to set some context: In February 2013, Des moved to China for a year so he could learn enough Mandarin to perform stand-up to a Chinese audience. He even starred on China’s biggest dating show. Now he’s here to share these hilarious and unique experiences with you.

Comedy fest review: Eli Matthewson in Faith

I don’t laugh at stand-up comedy a whole lot any more. I have performed it a bit. I’ve seen it an awful lot more. I’ve watched it on TV. I’ve reviewed it.

Laughing my fucking ass off

*Possible trigger warnings* The latest outrage for us to express our outrage over and be outraged came in twos this week, when our Prime Minister made a joke about a paedophile and then RedFoo (from LMFAO) side-kicked in a song called “Literally I can’t“.
