My Dad Was Nearly James Bond: Des Bishop
The Edinburgh Festival Fringe is the biggest arts festival in the world. During August, the Royal Mile becomes the city's most colourful and exciting artery when the vibrant theatre and street performers become the face of the festival, with tourists flocking from the world over to queue up for a glimpse of some bohemian mastery.
During the festival the Royal Mile is pedestrianised and completely closed to traffic. Performers from far and wide pour into Edinburgh to fire throw, sword swallow, try a new tune, or chain themselves to themselves! A wheelin' and spinning carnivale world comes to life in Edinburgh when August hits.
See www.edfringe.com for further information.
As a native New Yorker, Des Bishop moved from Queens to Ireland in his mid-teens in 1990. He has since carved out a highly successful career in stand up comedy in Ireland as well as having had three acclaimed television series on RTE, Ireland - The Des Bishop Work Experience (2004), Joy in the Hood (2006) and most recently, the award winning six episode comedy documentary series In the Name of the Fada (2008). The openness and honesty of his presenting style combined with his restless imagination and insightful comic observations make Des Bishop a "must-see" for fans of unique, enquiring and entertaining comedy.
